Use Your Oxygen Mask: Self-Care for Interpreters - Angela Scruggs- Friday October 7 at 5-8 PM     0.3 GS CEUs

This workshop offers participants a personalized look into their individual self-care habits, needs, and how to manage the demands of interpreting while maintaining a mentally and physically healthy self.

 

Power, Privilege and Oppression: 101- Saturday October 8 at 8:30-12:30PM        0.4 PPO CEUs

This workshop offers participants a foundational overview and understanding of the complexities, nuances, and terminology pertaining to power, privilege, and oppression. Participants will gain knowledge and insight into cultural influences and historically significant events that are often overlooked. Participants will also explore their personal bias to these and related concepts through various facets of their identity and its impact on the workplace to become more culturally sensitive and promote an equitable workplace environment.

 

Mental Health Interpreting and Unintentional Trauma - Saturday October 8 at 1:30-4:30PM           0.3 PS CEUs

This workshop will dive into Mental Health Interpreting and find areas where the interpreters can cause more trauma and/or strip away power from an already vulnerable situation. When taking work without proper qualifications, not knowing how the role of a Mental Health Interpreter is different, and not working as a part of the treatment team, you are not only failing to facilitate communication, but you are unintentionally setting back the progress that the patient could possibly achieve and then become part of the problem.
