A full day workshop on vicarious trauma
Working as translators and interpreters, we are often challenged by communicating the intensely traumatic experiences of others and in some cases feeling threatened ourselves. In order to minimise the negative impact upon us it is vital not only to understand the process and mechanisms of vicarious trauma, but also to learn ways to address it. Therefore, AUSIT NSW would like to invite our fellow practitioners to attend a full-day interactive, hands-on, multi-media workshop that has been developed to provide both novice and experienced interpreters/translators with the knowledge and tools to minimise the risk and impact of vicarious trauma (VT) following highly emotive assignments. Participants will gain detailed insights into the neuropsychosocial factors involved in the process of vicarious traumatisation, the cognitive/emotional/physiological/behavioural symptoms and a range of strategies for reducing the risk before, during and after highly stressful assignments
