9-12 The Medical Interpreting Kaleidoscope: A Conversation on Perspectives. $40
As interpreters are an essential part of the multidisciplinary team in healthcare settings, how interpreters respond to various healthcare situations may affect job performance and, ultimately, patients’ clinical experiences. During this interactive workshop, Corey Axelrod – 2axend’s founder and CEO – will explore key stakeholder perspectives in various situations and equip interpreters with tools to provide services that are responsive to, and respectful of, Deaf clients/patients, family members and health care providers’ preferences and communication access needs.
After the training, participants will:
• Recognize common challenges and obstacles Deaf individuals encounter in health care settings;
• Anticipate and react appropriately to difficult situations;
• Be mindful of their own triggers and the effect they have on clients/patients, family members and members of the health care team; and
• Understand and apply best practices to creative positive communication accessibility experiences for all stakeholders.
1-4 Strategic Community Allyship: A Model of Success for Interpreters. $40
This interactive workshop encourages participants to take a closer look at the perceived and actual benefits of strategic community allyship. Through Deaf lens, Corey Axelrod – founder and CEO of 2axend – will identify multiple ways sign language interpreters can effectively provide long term strategic support that will collectively benefit the Deaf and interpreting communities. After this workshop, participants will: • Recognize the impact of allyship on disrupting the continuous cycle of the oppression of Deaf individuals; • Understand and apply best practices to measure short- and long-term return on investment (ROI) of allyship behaviors; and • Utilize strategies to amplify the messages and actions of marginalized communities.
