We often speak of Interpreting as a ‘profession’, and we as practitioners refer to ourselves as professionals….. but what, really, does that mean?? As interpreters, we are responsible for the future of our profession, as well as the perception of our own field by the world at large. This session will address the concept of professionalism and the various defining aspects that exist in our field. Participants will engage in discussions about best practices, the way we as practitioners can manifest professional behavior, and the different methods by which these concepts can be applied to our work.

This workshop is presented in ASL

Level of Participant’s Prior Knowledge of Topic: Little/None to Experienced Interpreters
