COEs (Codes of Ethics) are sets of guiding principles that intend to help individuals in their decision-making process when encountering dilemmas or choosing best practices. Although COEs are typically supplemented by SOPs (Standards of Practice), they don’t provide guidance on all situations an individual might encounter or consider the context in which these situations occur. Interpreters often face this dilemma, where they need help finding specific advice for the problems they encounter or feel like contributing factors add a layer of complexity to the decision-making process. This webinar will explain how interpreters can use critical thinking to overcome these challenges.

Certificate note: This webinar is curated by HCIN Learn, which is responsible for issuing certificates. There is a $20 fee to process the certificate (if you do not need the CEUs, do not pay the fee). Instructions will be provided during the webinar, and invitations will be sent after the event, to participants who attend the entire webinar.
