    Approved for 4.00 CE hours for CCHI/CEAP and 0.4 CE hours. for NBCMI/IMIA 

    Even when faced with identical ethical dilemmas or scenarios, interpreters’ ethical decision-making choices may vary significantly. Several factors, including work experience, personality traits, and ethical knowledge, may contribute to this. Kohlberg’s Theory of Moral Development is one way to explain this variety of ethical choices. According to this theory, moral reasoning progresses from childhood to adulthood through a series of increasingly complex levels and stages. This theory can offer a framework for describing the rationale behind interpreters’ decisions and evaluating the depth of our own ethical reasoning.
