November 16th 2014. Yesterday I attended a great workshop in Vancouver, Canada – thanks to the kind invitation by Karen Malcolm (the facilitator/presenter from last year’s Connect Spring Workshop), where I role-played a psychiatrist. It was a perfect role for me as I really needed the interpreters for the Canadian Sign Language users! There were hearing and Deaf interpreters working together and discussing things like affect, placement of interpreters, and the use of 1st person as opposed to 3rd person….oooh I can’t wait for this to be the norm in NZ…
