Supervision Sessions for ACIS Members

Supervision is a specialised form of professional mentoring provided for interpreters responsible for undertaking challenging work with people. 

Supervision is provided to: ensure standards; enhance quality and creativity; and enable the sustainability and resilience of the work being undertaken.

Supervision Sessions will create a free, non-judgmental space to think about our work, share experiences and offers an opportunity for transformative learning. 

It is recognised and widely accepted that interpreters in mental health contexts can be left emotionally disturbed and impacted negatively by the work they do. This happens when dealing with other traumatic settings too.

Supervision of Interpreters provided by ACIS will follow a model with three functions: reparative, reflexive and responsive – the 3 Rs.

More information will be sent to those who wish to take part. However, please note that supervision is not a counseling session.

Join the list by emailing us: info@acis-uk.org

We are aiming to offer the first supervision session in March.

Groups will be small and offered on a first-come-first-served basis.
