WRAP for Interpreters Workshop – Aug 15-16th

July 29, 2014 in Community Events, Interpreting & Transliterating


POSTPONED (will be rescheduled)

WRAP is the Wellness Recovery Action Plan that can be utilized to maintain physical and mental wellness.  Interpreters can develop their own plan to keep themselves physically and mentally well in their professional and personal lives.  Self-monitoring is a large aspect of WRAP and being able to identify things such as fatigue (mental and physical), compassion fatigue, and other signs of negative symptoms you might experience can prevent them from becoming overwhelming.

The workshop will be led by CW Tillman and Beth Klein and will be held at NVRC, 3951 Pender Ave, Fairfax, VA 22030.  It will be held on August 15 from 6 pm – 9 pm and August 16th from 9 am – 5 pm.  Lunch and snacks will be provided. 1.0 CEU’s are offered and sponsored by VRID.

Early bird registration is $90 and is through August 1st. 

After August 1st regular registration is $100. 

WRAP will be taught in spoken English. 

Learn more and register today at: http://www.pahdeaf.org/?p=12

For more information or to request accommodations before August 1st email CW Tillman at info@pahdeaf.org.
