NOTIS’ Community Interpreters Division presents

WEBINAR: STRESS and interpreting (Recorded) Presented by Eliana Lobo

What is it about?Attendees will learn how stress negatively impacts performance, and what they can do about it. This training explains how the physiological effects of stress impact and impede language production and conversion, while providing tools and techniques to help manage stress and improve performance.

Training strategies, techniques for self-calming and study plans for interpreters will be shared with the goal of better preparing working interpreters to be better at handling stress in the moment of interpreting.

Content includes techniques to improve and manage memory, breathing exercises to reduce stress and improve message delivery.
Methods for establishing baseline metrics, (how fast is too fast, how long is too long) will be shared.
Exercises for measuring one’s progress, as well as establishing stretch goals for memory and speed will be demonstrated and shared.

Sample scripts for managing flow before the discussion or conversation goes off track will be given. Participants will be encouraged to personalize scripted templates for us in the pre-session and when asking for a repetition or clarification. Skill drills that simulate added stress will be shared. These simulations help prepare interpreters to work while experiencing stress, in that they can learn to develop the additional mechanical skills together with the ability to work through their stress, and ultimately do a better job, while on the job.
