Blogging the National Symposium on Healthcare Interpreting

Welcome to the blog for the National Symposium on Healthcare Interpreting, sponsored by the CATIE Center at St. Catherine University on July 22-25, 2012.

In this forum, Doug Bowen-Bailey and Karen Malcolm will share reflections from their attendance and participation in the symposium.  You are welcome to chime in in the discussion.  We will be using a combination of written English and ASL video.

In addition, we have set up pages for all of the presentations.  Karen and Doug will not be able to attend all of the workshops, or share reflections on all.  You can, however, initiate a discussion by commenting on the workshop.

We hope you will find it a helpful extension of the learning and discussion that takes place during the symposium.

    Thanks for piloting this blog during the Healthcare symposium! I’m in WA state and am thankful for your efforts! Looking forward to learning from you all this coming week!

    We’ll look forward to hearing from you, too, about how your experience is from afar. Thanks for being a part of it.

    First night down and I am left with some answered questions, yet leave the evening keynote with so many more – those questions of course will drive myself and the cohort of interpreters I work with to learn more and how to bring practice and application home to progress mental health services. Not only in my own role as an interpreter in the mental health settings in which I work but perhaps Roger Williams will need to be invited to present to the practitioners we work with to go beyond DSM and understand the Deaf population and the importance of collaboration with the interpreting team. So excited to be here!!!

    We are very glad that this symposium is being accessed by people who are not also here on site. We hope that it will really be of benefit for you, too, and look forward to your input on this. Feel free to ask for clarifications on any of the posts. Not sure how much time Karen and myself will have to clarify during the symposium itself, but we will do our best.
