Becoming Transformative & Restorative Interpreters in Violent Settings

*Presented in ASL*

by Stephanie Mathis (Domestic Violence)

We have recently been inundated with the concept of “Deaf Heart”. What that means and how it is quantified comes with a myriad of answers from a myriad of people. It is not only what we do, but “why” we do it that can identify our level of engagement and partnership with the Deaf community. This workshop will focus on why we do the things we do and subtle behaviors that either empower or dis-empower our Deaf community members. Understanding the reason behind our actions can lead to our becoming better allies with the community as a whole.
