"Great usable model that can be applied to work and everyday life. Really well presented with lots of clear examples." - Kate, Interpreter

Jill’s first webinar: Interpreting Counselling/Psychotherapy Sessions has been one of our most popular to date. Jill is a qualified sign language interpreter and Psychotherapist and returns to provide more insights into this field from both the professional and interpreter’s perspective.

Drawing upon the theory of Transactional Analysis*, this webinar is an opportunity to increase your capacity for self-reflection.  To help you reflect upon those moments when you leave an interpreting assignment and you just don’t know what went wrong.

Jill will explain what psychological Games are, highlight different ways of understanding how Games are played, when we play Games, who we play Games with and what feelings emerge when we play them.

Learning outcomes:

  • Gain an understanding of Psychological Games and begin to relate this to interpreting assignments.
  • Begin to gain awareness of why Games are played.
  • Gain an awareness of your options if/when finding yourself in a Game.

*Transactional Analysis is a theory of personality, communication and life patterns (how we relate to others).

“Interesting content.  Helped me view interpreting and personal issues in a different way” – British Sign language interpreter

Great usable model that can be applied to work and everyday life. Really well presented with lots of clear examples.” – Kate, Interpreter

“I think this will help me to be aware in every setting I work in, not to jump in as the rescuer.  You said something earlier about in doing this we are dismissing the other person’s ability to do things themselves, which makes complete sense now but is never my intention.  Great stuff to reflect on, thanks.” – Danielle, Interpreter

The concept of ‘I’m Ok You’re OK’ was interesting. I  liked the Drama triangle game, made things very clear. Also the options when confronted with someone playing games i.e co worker.” – Lesley
