Course outline
Interpreters work in a wide area of settings, there are times when work can leave us with thoughts and feelings that are difficult to process. Supervision is a long-awaited time and space for us to be able to bring concerns, issues and dilemmas for discussion. In this session we will explore our lived experiences, the impact of our work and how supervision enables guide conversations in an honest and open way. It can further meaningful exploration including challenges, to help interpreters development, growth; reducing the risk of stress and burnout thus facilitating the continuation of a reflective professional who cares about themselves, others and their work. N.B. This session will include a practical element.
