The first module of the series "Foundations" focuses on the theoretical and conceptual base of the Integrated Model of Interpreting (aka the Colonomos Model) in a low stress environment. The training offers specific language to discuss interpreting work. Practice opportunities will be provided from ASL to English. This workshop is intended for hearing interpreters. A separate module is offered by Betty Colonomos for Deaf interpreters. We hope to offer that in the future.
