Interpreter Ethics: Views From The Other Side

This workshop is an instructor lead video presentation and group discussion.  Participants will watch a specifically created video that shows both Deaf and hearing clients’ perspectives on the Interpreter Code of Professional Conduct, as well as selected scenarios and dilemmas.  The group will discuss and compare answers found from workshop participants and those found in the video.

The workshop is designed to broaden our perspectives on the guidelines  “we” (the interpreter) follows – as disclosed through the Code of Professional Conduct (formerly the Code of Ethics) – by understanding what “they” (the Deaf and Hearing consumers of our services) think of the Code of Professional Conduct.  Other interpreting scenarios are presented to the video participants for group discussion.

This workshop satisfies the annual .30 (three contact hours) ethical Continuing Education Credits required  by the Missouri Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.  This workshop has applied for CEUs through the sponsor, Missouri Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.

This workshop will be taught and led by Joe Sapienza.
