In this week’s episode, we welcome local therapist, Jacob Glickman. Mostly working with the LGBTQIA+ community, Jacob started as an intern for the Attic Youth Center in Philadelphia. He attained his masters at La Salle University in clinical counseling and is now working on his doctorate in clinical psychology. At the same time, Jacob is making progress on a master's in human sexuality. Here we discuss the grand idea of using Dungeons and Dragons as a means of group therapy! The game has the opportunity for consequence-free character experimentation and has the possibility to incorporate heavy topics in an approachable way, according to Jacob. Get ready for an edutainment experience about LGBTQIA+ with Jacob Glickman!
