The Demand-Control Schema in a Digital Age

13th May 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm



How do we deal with dilemmas when we’re working alone in the back bedroom at home, the Deaf client is on a 2D screen, and the kids are fighting? The control choices you have in your tool kit might seem next to useless now that almost everything about your role has changed. But the skills you’ve been taught are invaluable and are still applicable. Let’s remind ourselves of what the DCS is, and think about how we can reduce our stress levels in our new environments.


Judy Scholes has been a BSL/English interpreter for the best part of ten years. Judy is a VLP volunteer with a special interest in VLP’s training offer to all members. Judy loves grappling with dilemmas and is keen to hear what challenges you’ve been experiencing over the last year, and thrash out some control options for you to consider going forwards.


Learning Outcomes:

  1. Remind ourselves of what the Demand-Control Schema is
  2. Think about how the DCS applies in our ‘normal’ working lives
  3. Dig deep into how the DCS can apply here and now.
