 – a collaborative between Reach Reaching Diversity and The Communication Bridge – presents:

Effective Listening & Memory Retention for Consecutive Interpreting of Medical Conversations – a continuing education skill-based workshop

Workshop Description:

The goal of this workshop is to advance consecutive interpreting skills for interpreters who facilitate communication of medical conversations when speakers do not share the same language in healthcare and legal settings.

This 7-instructional hour skill-based workshop utilizes a series of active listening techniques to enhance interpreters’ ability to understand what the speakers are saying and extract meaning.   It also teaches them how to reduce distractions and significantly improve memory intake by exploring memory styles and practicing strategies and mnemonic techniques to retrieve and analyze information.
Finally, the same listening skills & memory retention techniques are practiced during a series of consecutive interpreting exercises to help maintain accuracy and completeness.

When: Saturday, July 11th from 9:00am to 5:00pm
Where: UC Irvine Health, 101 The City Drive South, Orange, CA 92868
