Based on research from 2010, Caron Wolfenden will explore the highs and lows of working with Deaf professionals. Looking at a variety of settings, Caron will discuss the interpersonal and intrapersonal dynamics around working with clients in their professional domains and how we can seek to have positive working relationships. After all, we all want to enjoy our work, don't we?
Caron Wolfenden first researched this topic with Helen Gillespie, a Deaf social worker, and they presented their findings at the ASLI conference in 2010. Caron is a sign language interpreter with over 20 years of experience working in London and Devon, both in community and professional settings. Caron trains, assesses, mentors and supervises interpreters and is constantly seeking ways to make our work open for discussion. She says "We learn from our mistakes and my increasing years have led me to believe that the only way we can successfully work is to ensure our reflective practice never ceases. Only by talking about our work as interpreters can we be held accountable and ultimately find satisfaction and a sense of confidence"
By the end of the webinar learners should:
- Have an understanding of power in relationships
- Have gained a knowledge of how contracts feature within our client relationships
- Be able to identify stress in our client relationships (transference, countertransference, inter/intra personal)
- Have a criteria for assessing if you are the right person for the job
- Understand why supervision is important
