Two Upcoming Workshops- the same weekend!
Bethany Gehman, M.Ed, a sexuality educator, provides sexuality education for people of all ages, conducts professional training, and promotes inclusive and comprehensive sexual health education in Deaf K-12 educational programs and interpreting settings.
Unpacking Sexuality: Bringing Unconscious Bias to the Forefront.
This workshop is intended to provide interpreters opportunities to examine and analyze sexuality issues, explore values/attitudes/beliefs about sexuality, identify situations where skills with sexuality interpreting will be useful, and apply what was learned to interpreting practice. Participants will also learn appropriate and efficient tools aimed at making them more comfortable with interpreting sexuality content.
Working with LGBTQIA+ Client.
Deaf individuals who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, asexual, or queer face numerous significant barriers in accessing healthcare. This training will provide interpreters with a framework for incorporating LGBTQ+ issues in their interpreting work, including appropriate vocabulary, that will allow clients to feel comfortable in opening to their healthcare provider.
