‘Moving away from ‘I’m not good enough’’ (building your shame resilience)

The South West Massive is delighted to welcome Dr Jules Dickinson to Bristol to deliver this popular workshop.

Have you ever felt that you are not good enough as an interpreter? Have you heard a colleague express doubts about their skills and ability? Want to understand more about where this belief originates from, and the impact it can have on your self-belief, confidence and professional practice?

In this workshop we will work through a series of creative exercises to explore the feelings of shame, which is where our “I’m not good enough’’ internal script originates from. We will look at what shame is and how feelings of shame and inadequacy can impact on our relationships with deaf and hearing clients, as well as with our colleagues. We will explore what our ‘shame triggers’ are and how we react to them. Finally we will discuss how we can build resilience to shame and become confident and assured practitioners.

Learning outcomes

At the end of the session you will:

  • Be aware of the powerful nature of shame and where it originates from.
  • Be alert to shame in interpreted interaction.
  • Begin to develop strategies for managing feelings of shame thatmight arise in the course of your work.
  • Start to build your shame resilience.
