ASL Skills: Expansion (Shelly Lawrence 7 Technigues)
Bonnie Faye Gibbson-BrydonCENTURY 3
"When we take time to understand HOW we listen, our listening takes on a much deeper level. As interpreters, we are always reminded to “avoid English” and stay in conceptual ASL. Brevity is one of the keys to effective interpreting. What tools do we use to enhance our listening? What is the role of intuitive and inferential listening? What is the ethical practice of including unsaid information? (or was it ‘unsaid’?) Listening includes so much more than hearing, yet in our rush to get to the point, or the rush to predict – our limited explicit listening (as the full message) often distorts the implicit message. Additionally, what is our internal response to conflict in intuitive listening when the spoken words don’t make sense? Who/What, how does ‘REPEATED’ “itself” indexing technique critical to clarity? These and many more questions will be answered during this workshop. With interpreting, there is a process of analysis. This workshop will address specific tools and techniques in the mental process of listening. The participant will practice implicit “active listening” vs. explicit glossing as well as linear vs. visual listening, time referencing, and directional focus. Forensic listening opens the door to a more comprehensive accurate interpretation of the message. All this - and laughter. Come join us for a full day of learning. Bring your questions."
