Ways of Conveying Meaningful Messages

Mini Conference 2016 flyerEvery people have their own character, style, ways of conveying messages and "flavor".  How do we, the interpreters, pass consumer's cultural values, norms and information in ways that might allow outsiders a glimpse of what we know with meaningful messages?

This conference will begin the workshop with exploring the kinds of things outsiders think and feel when they think of Deaf people, and how we – as Deaf people's interpreters, colleagues, friends and family members – see those "flavors".  The next workshop focuses on building deeper processing skills – strategies for message processing and creating more powerful and effective interpretations.

Stephanie Feyne will wrap up the conference entailing a professional discussion in analyzing interpreters' interaction issues.

The goal of the conference is to create an atmosphere of safety and openness in which participants can share unusual ideas and thoughts, and new ways of thinking can be encouraged as we explore this somewhat uncharted territory.
