Financial Information: How can I interpret that? (NEW!)   
Through many mentor sessions working with interpreters, I have kept notes to share. It's amazing to see how interpreters creatively face challenges as they translate from English to ASL. I treasure opportunities to help interpreters improve their visual thinking, which Deaf audiences appreciate. This Financial Information Interpreting Workshop offers numerous ways to make interpreting more visual. We'll demonstrate how classifiers can effectively communicate financial information. Broaden your understanding of visual interpreting techniques regarding money, banking, budgets, interest rates and more. Learn about Deaf Culture. Visual clips, visual aids, analysis, current terminology, and outlines will be available. (0.4 RID CEUs available)

February 23, 2018 ~ Friday 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm
♥Non-Manual Signals: ASL Markers    
This workshop has a focus on non-manual signals, which are not distinctive "hand signs" yet are essential language morphemes. Interpreters will analyze and apply these grammatical markers, which involve eye and head movements, facial movements and body postures rather than the use of "signs" as distinct lexical elements. Video clips and discussion will increase interpreters' confidence in the use of non-manual markers (non-manual morphemes). (0.4 RID CEUs available)

February 24, 2018 ~ Saturday   8:00 am – 5:00 pm
♥ENGLISH EQUIVALENTS:  Whoa! Train Zoom Gone.  Did You See What She Signed? What did she mean by that and how can I say it in English?

English Equivalents help the student take signs that do not have just one translation in English and help the participant become aware of idiomatic English translations along with some technical vocabulary associated with particular signs.  English Equivalents in ASL will help you confidently continue the flow of information exchange from ASL to English and from English to ASL.  Trix Bruce is an Approved RID CMP Sponsor for Continuing Education Activities. This Professional Studies program is offered 0.8 CEUS for Classifiers at the Little/No to Some Content Knowledge Level.

My workshops benefit participants at all levels. Countless advanced interpreters have let me know that they enjoyed learning updated/new signs that they haven’t seen before, such as regional accents. They also loved it when I explained how to sign messages into ASL, rather than just signing in English word by word.  Interpreters appreciate that my workshops are excellent for review as well as for discovering new things that apply within the professional work environment. Students also mentioned that my workshops helped them to understand how to approach their own projects, research, and practice more effectively.
