This workshop is specifically for  interpreters working in medical situations, such as doctor's offices, mental health, emergency services (to name a few).  Participants will work together in group discussions as well as role playing to discuss guidelines on what is the best practices for ethical decision-making when working in medical settings.  Often we are working alone in medical settings, so this is a great opportunity to come together and work with colleagues to brainstorm and prepare a "ready to go toolbox" for when we go to work.

Price includes lunch
