“The training space felt safe enough for me to speak out and contribute, which I rarely do”

Transference causes people to unconsciously experience, and respond to, others based on past significant relationships and participants will have the opportunity to explore the thinking, feeling and behaviours that indicate transference within a relationship.

Projection is a psychological defence mechanism in which individuals attribute characteristics they find unacceptable in themselves to another person.

This workshop will increase awareness of how these interpersonal phenomena can affect interpreters and those they work with.

Learning outcomes:

  • Explore the four ways transference can be demonstrated
  • Identify transference patterns
  • Develop an understanding of the psychological, physiological and physical effects of transference and projection
  • Discuss how transference and projection can impact on the role of the interpreter
  • Develop techniques to separate the ‘there and then’ from the ‘here and now’.

10.00am – 4.30pm
