Interpreting - The Dark Side
APRIL 30TH | 9:00AM - 12:30PM (PDT)
CCRID hosts Bill Ross, CI/CT to bring this beneficial workshop!
The interpreting profession has a sense of camaraderie unlike many other professions. As part of a human services profession we have the honor and privilege of being present at some of the most sacred moments in the lives of Deaf people. Yet, in spite of all this goodness, there is a darker, less desirable side to our profession. Some of the dark marks on our profession are lateral (or horizontal) violence, the absence of grace and compassion for our colleagues, and personal/professional comparisons. These are just a few of the “weeds” growing in the field of interpreting, however, it does not have to remain this way. This workshop will address being agents of change, deliberately building goodwill, and additional strategies to become undivided, whole practitioners for our own benefit and for the benefit of the people we serve.
