Since 1983 RPG Research's founder, Hawke Robinson, has been researching the effects & uses of RPGs. He is a Washington State Department of Health Registered Recreational Therapist, with an interdisciplinary background in recreation therapy, music therapy, neuroscience, computer science, and research psychology. He has been involved with RPGs since the 1970s, using RPGs for client education goals since 1985, and for client therapeutic goals since 2004.

Since early 2017, Hawke has been joined by a growing core team of dedicated, wonderful, volunteers, helping grow the reach and capabilities of the research and program plans.

RPG Research is a 100% volunteer-run, non-profit, 501(c)3 charitable organization.
