    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!


    PRESENTER:
     
       STEPHEN SEWELL
                                 Spanish Medical
                                  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.

    Interpreting for children is always a challenge. And, interpreting for children with disabilities, in particular, for those with special education needs is an even bigger challenge.

    In this workshop you will be able to understand much more and with more detail what it takes to work with special education children. You will learn terminology in Spanish, Somali and Hmong when you listen to these three presenters: Mr. Jesus Villaseñor, Mr. Hassan Samantar and Mr. Dao Xiong, Multicultural Advocates from PACER Center.

    PACER Center is a parent training and information center for families of children and youth with all disabilities from birth to young adults.
