Interpreter Support Group


Medical or legal, spoken or sign language, whatever the discipline, interpreters act as both witnesses and narrators of many aspects of trauma, which over time can impact mental health and emotional well-being. 

This support group, led by a Medical Interpreter, will include education related to stress and self-care as well as dedicated time to support each other, ask questions, and share experiences. Come to receive support, learn something new, or to support others!

The workshop is a continuation of previous sessions, but you can come to one or to all.


FACILITATOR:    STEPHEN SEWELL

                              Interpreter

Stephen Sewell's first experience as an ad hoc medical interpreter was at the University of Minnesota Hospitals in 1971 (long before interpreting was regularly available). He has pursued his interest in Spanish language and culture through various community service jobs, as well as being a teacher of Spanish. His wide-ranging interests include cognitive development, cooking, music and the brain, and gardening. He is especially interested in encouraging others to explore learning and self-care opportunities. He recently completed training to be a trainer for The Community Interpreter International course.
