In this episode, the TTs - including new host Sarah Hickey - are joined by special guest, BSL interpreter and professional interpreting supervisor Hannah Watson.
Relevant es ever, we discuss vicarious trauma for interpreters of all walks - whom it can affect (spoiler: everyone!), how you can see it coming and what to do about it, which is exactly where Hannah comes in and shares her experience as a professional supervisor and how supervision can help interpreters deal with bottled up emotions, stress at work or just "that annoying speaker". Truly helpful tips for everyone!
