Managing Negative Emotional Responses To And During Roleplay ~
Taught by Tanith Rosenbaum of Sanctuary
Everyone feels emotions during roleplay. It’s actually one of the major draws, one of the major reasons why people roleplay, to feel emotions, emotional bonds and experience emotions they don’t get to experience otherwise. However, this inevitably includes emotions that are unpleasant or downright disturbing. Learning how to manage these emotions and turn them into positive experiences is one of the major skills a roleplayer has to learn to fully immerse in and enjoy roleplay, and possibly the most difficult one. In this class, we will go over techniques for doing that and practice them together.
