Safe Space Supervision
Professional Supervision for BSL/English Interpreters
Date: Tuesday 20th September 2016
Time: 7.00pm FREE
As interpreters, the one constant in all of our work is people – we are privileged to be part of the minutiae of their everyday lives, from the mundane to the highly dramatic. People are highly complex individuals and will bring ‘hidden and unspoken sets of expectations’ (Carroll 2014) to the interpreted event. These implicit values, hopes, desires and expectations can impact not only on the success of the interpretation, but also on us as individuals.
Supervision is a way of making sense of and exploring the complexities inherent in our role. It allows us to press the pause button on our busy work schedules and to rewind the tape- to look at what we do with fresh eyes and from a different perspective. Supervision can provide us with a protected and safe space to reflect on our actions and so inform our professional practice and behaviour.
This information evening aims to bring the concept of supervision to life, through a demonstration of the techniques employed in this positive and enabling process. We will discuss the specific issues relevant to interpreters as practice professionals and we will highlight the benefits that Professional Supervision can bring to both individual supervisees and to the profession as a whole.
This event will introduce our new professional supervision service, delivered by qualified supervisor and experienced interpreter, Dawn Barker (RSLI, Professional Supervisor)
Come along and find out more about this exciting new service, and help us eat the cakes!
