Skill Based: ASL to English, Listening! Understanding! and Voicing!

Bonnie Faye Gibbson-BrydonCENTURY 3

"Improves your listening strategies! How? Forensic strategies develop the constructive use of passive skills! As we interpret, we often interpret the implicit into explicit information. By discovering strengths in 'noticing differently' - increased empathetic VENACULAR understanding occurs. What is the role of intuitive and inferential listening - WHILE VOICING? Comprehensive communication - how do we know what we know? Each of the four types of listening, once recognized, play an important part in building awareness beyond understanding the word spoken, and we move into fluent meaning. As interpreters, we are always reminded "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 - EVEN WHEN WE ARE USING OUR EYES TO LISTEN, yet in our rush to get to predict - our limited explicit listening often distorts the implicit message. Additionally, what is our internal response to conflict in intuitive listening when the spoken words don't make sense? These and many more questions will be answered during this workshop. Within the 'verbal' practice of interpreting, there is a 'mental' process of analysis. This workshop will address specific tools and techniques in the mental process of listening, especially to your voice while interpreting. How often do you tape yourself voicing? You will in this workshop. 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! Bring your questions"
