Through this training participants will be able to identify the effects of trauma in the clients they serve and have strategies for improved interpretation that is trauma-informed. They will develop specific vocabulary needed for interpreting in these contexts. Participants will also become more aware of the indicators of secondary trauma within themselves and leave the training with a commitment to self-care techniques.
