The Effects of Work-related Stress on Interpreters
April 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree – £25.00
This webinar will present findings from Mike’s doctoral research on ‘The Effects of Work-related Stress on Interpreters’.
The initial idea behind this research project came from Mike’s personal experiences working as a BSL/English interpreter within a community setting, becoming aware of the impact that interpreting emotive or traumatic content could have on the interpreter. This was compounded by a random series of events that took Mike on an unplanned journey of emotions that identified a need for research for others working within the field of interpreting to be more aware of the resources available to practising BSL/English interpreters. This quickly led to a realisation that these resources were lacking, and the support offered to the profession around interpreting emotional or traumatic content was not very apparent nor accessible within the profession.
This event will be presented in BSL.
