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

    1 Continuing Education Credit

    The workshop consists of a one hour presentation followed by one hour of conversation in a small group setting.

    Interpreting can be a stressful and exhausting job. This support group 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!

    Registration opens on June 22nd, 2017

    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.
