MasterWord Interpreter courses offered through Foley Learning:

The Strategy of Ethical Decision-Making (3 Hours)

3 ATA CEPs, 0.3 RID CEUs 

This advanced workshop addresses questions such as: What is the difference between a moral decision and an ethical one? What is a cultural mediation problem versus an ethical dilemma? What are the guiding principles that allow an interpreter to professionally negotiate his or her way through difficult situations? Participants will have a clear understanding of the process of ethical decision-making by learning a three-step model rather than simply following a list of rules and will demonstrate this by working through scenarios, particularly in health care, designed to hone decision making skills.

Better Outcomes: Intercultural Interpreting  (3 Hours)

3 ATA CEPs, 0.3 RID CEUs 

Language and culture are tied together in such a way that interpreters must have understanding of both to be effective. The depth of cultural competence an interpreter poses directly impacts his/her linguistic, sociocultural, and ethical decision making ability on the job. In this workshop participants learn the danger of reciprocity of perspective, examine the differences between high and low context communication styles, and discuss how to work within the role of interpreter to negotiate cultural challenges as they arise, particularly in health care. Perfect for spoken and signed language interpreters.
