Put On Your Raincoat: Energetic Protection for Sign Language Interpreters

Interpreters are a channel, through which communication passes. This communication includes not only language, but emotion, energy, power dynamics, and intention.

Through practices of self-reflection, self-compassion, and mindfulness taught during this workshop, you will create a raincoat to protect yourself from the energetic effects of interpreting work. This can ensure that the message and all its invisible components pass through you unscathed to reach the intended recipient, and that they not stick to you and lead to burnout.

This workshop was recorded live in spoken English, offers 0.5 CEUs and can be accessed on-demand. Please contact for accessibility requests.
