Join ASLIAQ in for a 1/2 day session on Emotional Intelligence for Interpreters with Sarah Wheeler from the USA.  Sarah Wheeler, M.Ed., NIC-Advanced is currently working as a freelance interpreter and doctoral student. She has been working as a professional interpreter since 2007 and has presented nationally and internationally on various topics related to interpreting education, with an emphasis on emotional intelligence within the interpreting profession. Sarah is currently attending Grand Canyon University working on her second Masters in General Psychology and plans to continue to pursue Emotional Intelligence research in the field of Interpreting and Deaf and Coda Communities.


This workshop provides a theoretical foundation of emotional intelligence (EI) for interpreters and discusses how emotional intelligence competencies such as self-awareness, self-management, motivation, empathy, and social connection and collaboration could impact the professional practice of interpreters.


This will be a Zoom session for Members and Non-Members on Saturday 8 May from 9:00 – 12:00.
