The most hated word in the interpreting profession is the “F” word—feedback.Your heart drops.You start thinking, “oh no...what did I do wrong?”But it doesn’t have to be that way!In fact, it shouldn’t be that way!

This workshop focuses on both sides of the feedback dance.First we examine how we can improve our receptiveness towards feedback through clear expectations and boundaries and then we identify practical techniques for providing feedback starting from within.

This workshop is presented in ASL
