Workshop Description
This workshop is presented in ASL.
No voice interpreting will be provided.

The struggles of an interpreter often involve dealing with a myriad of feelings, sentiments and responses that come FROM the Deaf community, while we are interpreting. How do we, as interpreters, become BETTER instead of BITTER, whenever we are faced with seemingly destructive, unsupportive statements, attitudes, and non-verbal responses and cues from the Deaf community with whom we are working? How do we avoid allowing resentment, bitterness, and burnout to even begin to have a foothold on our ability or desire to interpret?

Educational Objectives:
Participants will be able to identify three or more destructive PERSPECTIVES resident within their attitudes, perspectives, and personal objectives which create opportunity for bitterness instead of betterment.
Participants will be able to develop, from our discussion, a working theory of betterment that can be internalized in their lives.
Participants will be able to effectively communicate and share that theory with others in their cohort/group, as well as offering any advice and suggestions to others regarding their one internal theory.
Participants will be able to develop a strategy to overcoming those destructive obstacles and perspectives, and be equipped to re-orient whatever destructiveness they may perceive from the Deaf community in a more positive, constructive and facilitative manner.
