Interpreters are charged with bearing witness to some of life’s greatest beauty and deepest pain, all while maintaining a stance of neutrality and flexibility. Over time, this can take a toll on your body, mind and spirit. Join us in this special group as we explore burnout and how it manifests in our lives. You will learn the three areas of your life that must be tended in order to prevent burnout, and create a personalized Burnout Proof plan. Throughout the course you will carry out your plan, hardwiring in new healthy habits, as you give and receive accountability and support in our private online space and monthly live group coaching calls. At the completion of the course you will have lifetime access to the materials that when applied, will leave you Burnout Proof!
Interpreting work is sticky, and often hard to forget. Some interactions can have an impact on us long after we leave an assignment, and we don’t always have safe ways to process. Over time this can lead to stress, injuries, & burnout. Join us to learn new tools to aid in reflecting on your work, improving decision-making, and avoiding burnout. Participants will have a chance to explore areas of stress in their work and to learn and practice tools to increase clarity, happiness & peace. This workshop utilizes hands-on and experiential learning opportunities so you can make this information your own and feel comfortable using it long after our time together.
Interpreters are professional communicators, we get paid to use language in ways that are clear and understandable. And we are rock stars at that most of the time!
But sometimes trying to communicate with our boss, referral agency, clients, and team interpreters just doesn’t go as smoothly. In this workshop we will explore the fundamentals of Non Violent Communication (NVC), a tool to help you communicate your needs effectively in a professional, connected way that will result in more understanding, more ease, less conflict, and ultimately: everyone getting their needs met!
