The Dilemma Game for Teens and Tweens is a practical tool designed to better prepare hearing healthcare professionals to deal with challenging clinical situations when treating teenagers.
The game consists of a series of cards describing challenging scenarios involving a teen or tween in a clinical setting. Three possible solutions are given, with the understanding that the ‘perfect’ solution might not exist. With no right or wrong answers, the game encourages reflection, critical thinking and analysis of the potential consequences that a practitioner’s choices may have on a client. Players use problem-solving skills to make decisions based on thorough analysis of the situation and the individuals involved.
The Dilemma Game is developed for use with colleagues, within a larger training group, in student training or as an individual exercise. The cards are also applicable for role playing and other learning exercises. Developed in collaboration with members of the Ida Institute community, the dilemmas are based on actual clinical situations.
