The workshop outlines the physical, psychological and physiological theory of stress, vicarious trauma and burnout and explores the impact these can have on the work, and health, of sign language interpreters. Participants will learn about the neuroscience of arousal and how the body, with the help of the mind, remembers – often unhelpfully. You will then have an opportunity to develop techniques to recognise your own individual stress indicators, which can help increase resilience and reduce the risk of work related stress, vicarious trauma and burnout.
