HFT Webinar Series - Frontlines to the Classroom: Advanced Practice Strategies for Interaction Management and Sociolinguistic Negotiation in the Healthcare Setting
Wednesday, July 28, 2021, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM CDT
Category: Webinar

The presenter will encourage interpreter trainers to teach their students to adopt an “interpreter practitioner” model of interpreter versus purely a "message converter.” She will share techniques to be taught to students, such as specific educational scripts, visual aids, and “high register negotiation” to enhance comprehension and trust. Andrea will also make the argument that interpreter trainers can help students understand why emotional intelligence is a necessary attribute for healthcare interpreters.
