Vicarious Trauma: Can we truly separate ourselves from what we are interpreting?

1 general CE credit approved for:  the ATA, Washington DSHS, Washington AOC, California CIMCE, and Oregon Judicial Department. Credit approval pending for: Idaho AOC

Course Description: Faced with interpreting detailed acts of violence, particularly in cases involving domestic violence and sexual assault, we often relive the trauma experienced by the victim.  Most often, interpreters are not aware to what extent or that they may be experiencing vicarious trauma. Hence, how can we prepare ourselves to interpret for such victims?  How can we better address vicarious trauma so we can continue to be of service in this kind of work? This webinar will assist participants in identifying symptoms as well as put into practice a variety of self-care strategies for managing vicarious trauma.
