Workshop #1 (9:00 AM – 1:15 PM)

Interpreting at the End of Life: Hanging in There and Letting Go

by Cindy Roat

Language neutral (English). Intermediate to Advanced

Continuing Education Units: 4 CIMCE, 4 ATA, 0.4 NBCMI

Interpreting for a dying patient is both a privilege and a challenge. As a patient moves from curative care to palliative care, discussions of technical medical and legal issues will mix with spiritual care and family meetings. For interpreters, end-of-life conversations can be among the most difficult to convey — not only linguistically and culturally, but personally.

This interactive four-hour workshop is designed to prepare experienced medical interpreters to work in end-of-life settings. Participants will:
· receive an introduction to the field of palliative care,
· be introduced to the specialized vocabulary and documents of palliative care,
· explore the impact of emotion and belief on the quality of interpreting,
· learn techniques to stay focused and present in emotionally draining situations, and
· learn to identify and combat secondary trauma, vicarious trauma and compassion fatigue.

This multimedia, interactive training includes videos, a PowerPoint presentation, group discussion and interpreting practice. Participants will go home with a bilingual glossary of palliative care terms (available for Cantonese/traditional Chinese, Mandarin/simplified Chinese, Korean, Russian, Spanish, Tagalog, and Vietnamese) as well as vocabulary exercises and practice dialogues for ongoing independent study.

Workshop #2 (2:00 PM – 5:15 PM) 

Medical-Legal Interpreters: Extending Boundaries

by Holly Mikkelson 

Language neutral (English). Intermediate to Advanced.

Continuing Education Units: 3 CIMCE, 3 ATA, 0.3 NBCMI

This 3-hour workshop will address the issues that arise when medical interpreters and court interpreters provide services in medical-legal evaluations, each venturing out beyond the normal scope of their practice. For medical interpreters, the adversarial environment of these examinations differs from the collaborative interactions they are used to in the healthcare setting; whereas court interpreters must adjust to working in a clinical environment that is not as adversarial as the courtroom.

Can interpreters be equally competent in all settings? What are the different expectations of the legal and medical professionals and the patients/applicants with whom they work? These and more questions will be answered in an interactive session featuring a combination of lecture, discussion and role-play scenarios.

By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to define adversarial and collaborative interactions and identify the procedural and ethical challenges inherent in medical-legal interpreting.

Consortium Exam Preparation Workshop II

Jan 9, 2013   //   by globaltradu   //   Conferences  //  No Comments

The Oral Portion of the Consortium Interpreter Exam for the State Courts can be tricky and challenging if you are not well prepared for it. Many people waste considerable amounts of time and money by repeatedly taking this test. This intensive exam-preparation workshop will give you the tools to have the upper-hand for the next round of testing this February.

The trick is to know “what & how” to study. With that in mind, some key highlights of this workshop are:

  • An intensive focus on the texts, proceedings, and situations you will most likely encounter on the test.
  • The identification of scoring units to substantially increase your scores on each component.
  • Tips on how to improve the three modes of interpretation that you will encounter in this test: sight translation, consecutive interpreting, and simultaneous interpreting.
  • Avoiding common pitfalls that can hinder your performance.
  • Having the vocabulary arsenal: idioms, proverbs, expletives, false cognates, physical descriptions, automobile terms, weapons, drugs, among other relevant terms, that are commonly used in Interpreting standardized testing.

This workshop will include a brief review of the key strategies presented in session I, before focusing on the application of said strategies via many more practice exercises and mock testing-like activities. Several additional files (documents and recordings) will be presented and shared online with the attendes for future practice.
