This workshop will focus on problem solving and ethical decision making while on interpreting assignments. We will examine a variety of scenarios relating to confidentiality, social media, accepting assignments, being qualified for the assignments we accept, accepting a “feed” from the Deaf client or team, and other scenarios that influence our profession. We will discuss our ethical progress over the years and what we would suggest to continue making improvements to our profession. We will discuss 3 types of decisions that can be made and how those decisions could affect the communication situation and the persons involved.

Learning Objectives –
-Describe various tenets of the CPC, as applied to our professionalism.
-Discern the difference between decisions made based on emotion, reasoning, and ethics.
