Ethics Enforcement

Shane Feldman and Matthew O’Hara

2013 PCRID-MDAD Conference

This session will provide an overview of RID’s Ethical Practices System, including the compliant, adjudication and mediation processes.  Attention will be paid to how the EPS process does and how it serves both the Deaf and interpreter communities in resolving conflicts on a local, one on one level in ways that maintain the relationships between community members.  Additionally, strategies for difficult conversations and conflict resolution will also be offered.  Examples will be shared to demonstrate the types of conflicts, effect on relationships and communities and successful resolutions.  Lastly, the session will include a recap of the past 6 years of ethics enforcement.
