TRAININGS & WORKSHOPS

2 Amazing Topics on One Saturday! (.6 CEUs)


Interpreters in Medical Settings &
Interpreting in Legal Settings 101 Workshop


Workshop Presented by
Dr. Daniel Burch
October 26, 2019 at 9am -- 4pm
5320 and 5324 Canal Boulevard, New Orleans, LA 70124
(LRID Members - $45 /Non-LRID Members - $65 / Students - $35)


Workshop Description:
Interpreting in Medical Settings--9am-12pm--As the American population ages, we increasingly find ourselves in medical situations: from simple checkups to life-threatening conditions. Of all situations, medical situations may make us wrinkle our brows in the application of our Code of Professional Conduct. The terminology includes body part labels, procedures, and medications. And what is this HIPAA thing? How do we handle ourselves this without a medical degree? Instruction will begin with an overview of the growth and development of interpreting in medical settings, including relevant legislation. The RID CPC will be discussed in relation to professional behavior in medical settings. Case studies will be presented for analysis. Participant discussion is expected to occur throughout the training session.

Interpreting in Legal Settings 101--1pm-4pm--“I am afraid of legal interpreting. The court room intimidates me.” As well it should. It is designed to do so! Legal interpreting has its tense moments, but the majority of work is rather routine. However, it can never be routine if you know nothing about it, or have not had its inner workings somewhat demystified. This workshop is designed to provide an introduction to interpreting within the legal system (civil and criminal). Instruction will begin with an overview of the growth and development of interpreting in legal settings, including relevant legislation. The RID Code of Professional Conduct will be discussed in relation to professional behavior in legal settings. Case studies will be presented for analysis. Participant discussion is expected to occur throughout the training session.

Babies can communicate using sign language as young as 8 months old. Sign language is an excellent tool to provide access to communicate with your baby before your baby is able to speak.

 

It has been noted that those who learn a second language show greater cognitive development in mental flexibility, creativity, problem-solving, conceptualizing, and reasoning skills. *

Whether you want your baby learn sign language in order to help them to start building their language/communication skills at an early age or if your child is Deaf, hard of hearing, autistic or non-verbal; learning American Sign Language can be a very helpful tool in communication and an excellent opportunity for you and your child learn together.
