Webinar: Shame Resilience by Jules Dickinson

4th December 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm


FULLY BOOKED Email training@asli.org.uk to join the waiting list.


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

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?

“I’m not good enough’ is a feeling that is rooted in shame and this workshop will examine what shame is, where it originates from and how it affects us. We will develop our understanding of how feelings of shame and inadequacy can impact on our relationships with both deaf and hearing clients, as well as with our colleagues. We will explore how we can be alert to feelings of shame within interpreted interaction. Finally we will discuss how we can build resilience to shame, shake off those ‘I’m not good enough’ shackles, and adopt a more confident and assured presence in our work.

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 that might arise in the course of your work.
Start to build your shame resilience.
