SCATTONE, Vitor Villar  e  TUCCI, Adriana Marcassa. Use of Role-Playing Game in skills training to cope with situations of risk for drug use. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.18, n.2, pp. 645-666. ISSN 1808-4281.

The Role-Playing Game (RPG) is a playful intervention that may favor both through Coping Skills Training (CST), provided by role playing. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of RPG in CST for drug use risk situations, more specifically, evaluate the user's self-confidence to resist to this use in these situations. It is an exploratory, randomized study and consisted of control and experimental groups with five members each. Participants were admitted to a private institution. The instruments used were: Alcohol, Smoking and Substance Involvement Screening Test (ASSIST) and Brief Situational Confidence Questionnaire (BSCQ). Data analysis was performed using analysis of variance with repeated measures. The intervention took place over four weeks, with a weekly meeting and group format. The results indicate that the intervention provided an increase in participants' self-confidence in facing different risk situations that trigger drug use, especially in situations of personal, family and social conflicts; moreover, there was also an increase in self-confidence to refuse drug use in uncontrolled situations. RPG can be an useful and a complementary tool for CST for drug use risk situations.
