Vicarious Trauma and Interpreters
Bridging Voices is pleased to partner with Dr. Gina Vanegas to bring this important topic to the forefront. Interpreters working in a variety of settings experience vicarious trauma due to the complexity and sensitivity of the topics they interpret. As conduits of information, interpreters can often experience anxiety, anguish and trauma due to the messages they are transmitting. Dr. Gina Vanegas and Lena Morán-Acereto will provide tools and strategies to recognize and cope with trauma. Participants will learn techniques and strategies to cope during sessions, after sessions and create self care plans.
