Work Related Stress, Burnout and Vicarious Trauma workshop

3rd March 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm


ASLI member fee £70 (with discount code)  /  Non-member fee £120


Work Related Stress, Burnout and Vicarious Trauma 

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. They will then have an opportunity to develop techniques to recognise their own individual stress indicators, which can help increase resilience and reduce the risk of work related stress, vicarious trauma and burnout.
