Towards a Practice of Trust: Increasing trust between Deaf consumers and ASL-English interpreter practitioners
The goal for this interactive shared learning space is twofold. First, the interpreter participant will become familiar with three types of trust and how these trust theories manifest in our interpreting work.
Secondly, workshop participants will engage in practical activities designed to integrate trust-building techniques which participants can immediately incorporate in their work.
Activities include self-reflection, pair sharing, small group work, large group content presentation and discussion.
As a result of attending this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Identify three types of trust: relational, calculus, and swift
- Identify three antecedents of trust: Ability, integrity, and benevolence
- Explore how to incorporate the three antecedents of trust into their daily work
