WHAT WOULD YOU DO when confronted with various interpreting scenarios that require an immediate decision and reaction? Some scenarios are ethical in nature, some are best business practices, some involve moral dilemmas, and some are just opportunities to exercise values clarification. This interactive webcast will present participants with video simulations, text simulations, and other opportunities for discourse of possible solutions. At the conclusion of this webcast participants will have a clearer understanding of value judgments and how one determines ethical/moral behavior as it relates to the interpreting profession; will review the stages of value development; and apply these stages of development to situational dilemmas.
