“Should I say something, or not?”
This question comes up regularly in our work as interpreters. We understand that intruding upon the interaction where we are actively interpreting in has consequences, but our silence can have consequences too. In this workshop we will utilize the Awareness/Reflection Roadmap, created by The Community Interpreter International, to explore what our options for remediation are and how to recognize when the risks are too high and we must step in and become an advocate.
The course objectives are:
- Define “Communicative Autonomy.”
- Name two documents that contain defined professional, ethical principles.
- Describe the “Awareness/Reflection” advocacy roadmap.
Participants who successfully complete this course will receive a Certificate of Completion at the end of the course.
This training is designed for professional interpreters working in any language
The cost of this course is $50.00 (US). Course materials are included.
