Intro to Addiction and Recovery - 3/22/2021

Module Dates: March 22-April 23, 2021

Are you interested in doing ASL interpreting work in addiction and recovery settings, but want more foundation before you start? Have you been in this setting but are ready to deepen your knowledge to be more effective in the work? This module was designed with contributions from Keven Poore, Dr. Deb Guthmann, and Arlyn Anderson, and covers a wide range of topics to help you start developing best practices in this area.

Our consumers, both hearing and Deaf, deserve interpreters who are qualified in this work so that consumers have their best chance for recovery. We look forward to seeing you in the module!

This module will cover:

·       Language considerations, including common vocabulary and interpreting strategies.

·       Theories of addiction and recovery to help you frame the goals of each setting.

·       Information about the recovery experience of addicts who are Deaf.

·       An overview of the most common addiction and recovery settings that may be encountered.

·       Healthy self-care practices to help us do behavioral health work.

·       Suggestions for further training.
