Focus on interpreter self-care:
There have been Numerous articles published in our field about the Vicarious Trauma we experience in our work and how we deal with it. The reports are not positive and NOW is time for training to commence. Real-time Resilience Skills will equip Interpreters with tools and skills to deal with the Vicarious Trauma that we experience in our work. Resilience Skills can be used in REALTIME, and empower the Interpreter to deal with the Vicarious Trauma whether in VRS or Community Interpreting. The presentation includes tools and skills that have been researched, implemented and proven to be effective. The interpreter will leave the workshop with an enhanced understanding of their Thinking Style, will know their level of Resilience, and will have a solid foundation of Resilience Skills to utilize in their personal and professional lives. The participants will learn how to overcome their Resilience weaknesses and build on their strengths.
