Each day interpreters are faced with ethical dilemmas related to the facilitation of information. Some of these challenges are small and require a minimal amount of mental energy to resolve. While others, require a great deal of searching and values clarification before reaching a resolution.
Participants, by using their experiences and an analysis of their own values, will analyze their own personal evolution within the profession and application of the RID Code of Professional Conduct.
