Out of Sorts & seeking alignment

Monday, April 4, 2022

  • 4-5:30pm PT / 7-8:30pm ET
  • CEUs pending

At this time in the field of interpreting, compounded by the many changes and constraints during the times of COVID-19, there are some very prevalent trends and common experiences that deserve attention. In a recent training by Robyn K. Dean, “Should I stay or should I go?” a few themes emerged, this workshop takes a step toward addressing particularly the issues of emotional labor, job dissatisfaction and stress management. Underpinning those issues are particular commonalities among challenging relationships with colleagues, consumers, and hiring entities along with narratives that do not uplift us as professionals. In this training, we will explore these topics and identify resources for addressing them.

Upon completion of this training, participants will:

  • Identify guiding values underpinning their commitment to their professional practice.
  • Articulate causes of misalignment and feelings of burnout & dissatisfaction, including, but not limited to – relationships with colleagues, consumers, and hiring agencies, stress management, and prevailing narratives in the field.
  • Develop a small habit toward achieving and/or maintaining alignment with guiding values to gain clarity regarding commitment to their professional practice.


Will there be CEUs?

  • They are currently pending for .15 professional studies.

What is the language of the sessions?

  • It will depend upon the make up of registrants. Either spoken English or ASL.

What if I have other questions?

  • email me at arsmithstudios@gmail.com, I’ll keep adding to this section for others!
