Time: 9am-12pm MST/11am-2pm EST
RID CEUs: 0.3 PS

Workshop Description:

This workshop is a hands-on approach to the often daunting process of ethical decision making, and provides an easy step by step process via a template that includes the identification of the main issue of the case, applicable CPC tenets, analysis of all stakeholder perspectives, and a variety of control options, resulting demands, and successful "win win" solutions. This workshop will assist the interpreter in breaking down the EDM process into manageable parts. The template itself can be used for any future challenging scenario that may arise, improving upon an interpreter's personal ethical fitness as well as providing options for post assignment case conferencing, and acting as an overall resource to expand on the interpreter's tool kit.
