Module Dates: April 1-May 12, 2019
If you missed it the first time when we offered our modules in 2018, here is the second opportunity to take advantage of the CATIE Center’s module, Intro to Addiction and Recovery Interpreting.
Are you interested in doing ASL interpreting work in addiction and recovery settings, but want more foundation before you start? Have you been in this setting but are ready to deepen your knowledge to be more effective in the work? This module was designed with contributions from Keven Poore, Dr. Deb Guthmann, and Arlyn Anderson, and covers a wide range of topics to help you start developing best practices in this area.
This module will cover:
- Language considerations, including common vocabulary and interpreting strategies.
- Theories of addiction and recovery to help you frame the goals of each setting.
- Information about the recovery experience of addicts who are Deaf.
- An overview of the most common addiction and recovery settings that may be encountered.
- Healthy self-care practices to help us do behavioral health work.
- Suggestions for further training.
Learning happens through video lectures, discussion boards, and knowledge check-ins (activities).
Our consumers, both hearing and Deaf, deserve interpreters who are qualified in this work so that consumers have their best chance for recovery. We look forward to seeing you in the module!
This module will require about 20 hours of work. There are no set meeting times, but topics are opened weekly to give participants richer discussion and learning opportunities. All work must be completed by 11:59pm on May 12. No extensions will be offered. See Course Outline below for an overview of the course.
Registration fee: $40
Registration will become available within two weeks from the start date.
