Two Options for Engaging this Year


Supervision is an evidence-based reflective process used by other practice professions such as nursing and counseling. The goal of supervision is to  support individual practitioner development, ensure professional accountability, and receive collegial support. 


IIRAS group supervision will provide working interpreters with a supportive online community of practice. Every month participants will bring topics encountered in their everyday work to explore with colleagues with the intention of improving their interpreting practice. Trained Supervision Leaders will support participants through the supervision process.

Educational Objectives 

  • Participants will be able to describe and demonstrate the process of analyzing a case using the demand control schema.

  • Participants will demonstrate collegial behavior, support, and respect with a diverse group of colleagues.
