July 2020 – efsli webinar

Pausing your Practice can help you thrive:

Reflective Sessions can make you a better interpreter and a better remote worker

Registrations are closed


What is this training about?

In the webinar we will go through some of the new Demands on us and new Controls available to us as remote Sign Language interpreters.

We will speak more about the type of support there is available to us now that we don’t have as much access to our peers and colleagues.

And we will discuss the benefits of Reflective Practice sessions with paid Supervisors to nourish and encourage our development.

Two-hour interactive Zoom session: Presentation, small group work, plenary and Q&A.

This presentation will incorporate work by Dean and Pollard, Maslow, Hoza, Hawkings & Saville and if time allows, Downie and Napier.


Instructions on how to get connected to the efsli webinar platform will be given to registered participants.
