When our performance depends on it: Strategies & scripts for addressing interpreter mental fatigue
Date: November 10, 1:00 PM EDT*
While interpreters are aware of the potential for diminished accuracy when we become mentally fatigued, we do not have control over our environment. Or we think we don’t. Ms. Henry will provide valid arguments for interpreters to exercise more agency and effectively advocate for optimal working conditions. She will provide specific techniques and corresponding scripts for both interpreters and managers in our efforts to control the quality of our performance. Ms. Henry will argue that the use of scripts has the effect of indirectly persuading others to advocate for our optimal performance, as well. This webinar is a resource for interpreters, trainers, and administrators.
