About Event

Understanding our sense of who we are is the beginning of understanding one's interaction with the world, our relationships with others, and who we are in our profession. Join Human Relations and Body-Based Therapy specialist Dr. Linda Barnum and interpreter coach Josiah Fehlauer as they guide you on a journey towards increasing your authentic self as the foundation to your personal and professional roles and exploring what gets in the way of making this happen.

Participants will explore the essential connections between the authentic self and the work of interpreting with an aim toward enhanced personal and professional health.
