Personal or Professional: The Ethics Conundrum


Personal or Professional: The Ethics Conundrum

Add To Cart

In our interpreting world, it is only in the last decade or so that the ethical decisions we make moment by moment are considered situational rather than a strident adherence to the Code of Professional Conduct (CPC).  The interview section of the NIC performance exam attempts to understand our rationale for the choices we make, thus recognizing that circumstances influence our ethical choices.

This DVD will explore our personal ethics and how these impact our compliance to our professional ethical code.  Paula D. Browning will introduce the tenets of the CPC in conjunction with interpreting scenarios in which we might find ourselves.  Discussion and questions will help identify which code we are most apt to use in conflicting situations and help blend them in an effective display of ethical professional behavior in our work.
