This workshop will include information about certain mental health disorders that can affect interpreters.Counter-transference, transference, and vicarious trauma are shared experiences among people in the helping profession. Hearing those stories or experiencing reactions from clients towards interpreters may overwhelm interpreters and lead them to experience the same feelings faced by deaf customers especially children and survivors of sexual abuse and assault. Therefore, interpreters may be at risk of experiencing vicarious trauma and compassion fatigue. This workshop will discuss self-care practices to reduce the risk of vicarious trauma and compassion fatigue.
Continental breakfast included. Lunch will be 1.5 hours on your own.
