My Imposter and Me: Imposter Phenomenon in Interpreters

They avoid conflict, struggle with work-life balance, and don’t trust their own abilities. This workshop will introduce these challenges and offer tools for bringing life into balance, protecting interpreters from work-related trauma, and approaching their work with greater joy. Imposter Phenomenon will be explained, and general strategies for overcoming IP will be discussed.
