16th June 1 day workshop – ‘Looking After Ourselves With Tenderness

Facilitated by Dr Wendy McIntosh

We’re really excited to welcome one of our most popular trainers, all the way from Australia, to provide a full day workshop in London on self-care for professionals.

This one day workshop will focus on ways to look after ourselves as we provide care for the clients we see.

Using experiential learning (psychodrama) a number of themes will be explored during the day including Vicarious Trauma and Transference / Counter Transference. The content will be contained within the framework of professional boundaries.

Having clear boundaries with clients, family of clients, colleagues and peers is one way of looking after self. In this workshop the facilitator will integrate the importance of being tender with oneself in order to have tenderness for and with others—even when experiencing high levels of stress.

Learning objectives:

Voicing strategies for the interpreter’s toolbox: What we can learn from International Sign interpreting

Brett Best

  • Cost: £ 25
  • Cost (US): £25
  • Duration: 120 minutes

Looking to improve your voiceover or just curious to know more about international sign? In this webinar you’ll learn how International Sign can assist your day-to-day voice over (sign language to English/spoken language) skills.

Brett shares several strategies utilised by interpreters as they took a highly visual piece of communication in International Sign, and interpreted the message into spoken English. This research is applicable and will be of interest to interpreters of national sign languages, such as BSL/English interpreters, and ASL/English interpreters because all of the strategies identified are techniques that many sign language interpreters do or could use in their everyday work.
