WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION: The primary task of an ASL interpreter is to facilitate connection between two people who have a desire or need to communicate, both of whom very likely do not know each other. Sometimes it is difficult, draining. Sometimes it feels rejuvenating. How can you skew the odds in your favor toward a satisfying interpreting experience for all three parties each and every time? Would you like to increase the chance that each encounter will brand you a five-star interpreter, and leave you with the soul-feeding satisfaction that you brought people together who otherwise would never have connected so well? A little known secret of those who bring people together is that connection with Self determines the quality of any connection made with and between others. Explore an evidence based method for improving quality of connection with self and others, incorporating the methods of the great connector and communicator Virginia Satir.
