The Strategy of Ethical Decision-Making – 10am to 1pm
Approved for 0.3 RID CEUs (3 IMIA CEUs and 3 ATA CEPs In Progress)
This advanced workshop addresses questions such as: What is the difference between a moral decision and an ethical one? What is a cultural mediation problem versus an ethical dilemma? What are the guiding principles that allow an interpreter to professionally negotiate his or her way through difficult situations? Participants will have a clear understanding of the process of ethical decision-making by learning a three-step model rather than simply following a list of rules and will demonstrate this by working through scenarios, particularly in health care, designed to hone decision making skills.
