Vicarious Trauma – avoid reliving your client’s experience

Cost from £25

Vicarious trauma is also referred to as compassion fatigue or secondary traumatization (Figley, 1995). When working with clients suffering trauma, we can feel an emotional residue, stress and/or weariness and lose our zest for life. Why does it happen?  As empathetic professionals, how do we protect ourselves from vicarious trauma, or minimise its effects? We’re delighted to have Wendy back to expand on her previous webinars.

Working with agencies to achieve and maintain professional standards

Are you feeling the pressure from agencies to reduce your fees or working conditions? Does it have to be a ‘them and us’ scenario? How can we work together to ensure professional standards and a sustainable, quality service are maintained? What benefit could accreditation of agencies bring?

What better way is there to sum up this webinar than with this learner reflection:

“I think we are in uncertain times, and sometimes you have to ride the storm. We can all work together. we should all be doing webinars like this to share experiences as a collective which makes us stronger”

Interpreting in medical settings – are we really prepared?

Medical interpreting is both challenging and rewarding. It’s a domain we don’t enter into lightly and there are serious consequences to our actions as professionals.

In the webinar we will be looking at some of the areas in which we can develop our knowledge and understanding to help us provide a better service. We will look at things such as anatomy and physiology, medical terminology and jargon, clients’ attitudes and expectations of interpreters and how we can deal with these in a sensitive and effective manner.
