0.3 Professional Studies
ASLIS is an Approved RID CMP Sponsor for Continuing Education Activities. This Professional Studies program is offered for a total of 0.3 PS CEUs at Some Content Knowledge Level.
In this experiential workshop, we shine a compassionate light on recovering vitality after empathic strain (also known as compassion fatigue). Interpreters navigate the intricate dance of managing our emotions, while also being attentive to the emotions, needs, and cultural nuances of others. Proximity alone makes us prone to absorbing the intensity of others’ experiences. This unique workshop provides a nurturing space for interpreters to explore and address the empathic strain that can accompany their profession. Through tailored exercises and facilitated discussions, participants will learn to recognize and manage the impact of empathic strain. Our goal is to equip interpreters with practical tools to replenish their energy, foster emotional resilience, and strike a harmonious balance between dedication to professional effectiveness and personal well-being. Join us as we explore how to rediscover vitality and thrive in our rewarding yet challenging role.
