Beyond Praise and Criticism:

Giving and Receiving Authentic Feedback

for Sign Language Interpreters

Online Workshop

How often have you held back your honest feedback for fear of damaging your relationships with colleagues and clients? How often have you observed incorrect interpretations or behavior that promotes audism and remained silent because you didn't know how to constructively address it?

This online workshop equips you with practical and tactical tools to integrate Nonviolent Feedback into you daily practice and gain confidence in giving, receiving, and asking for feedback on a regular basis. It shifts the feedback mindset from one of judgment to one of connection, creating a feedback culture that leads to higher performance and greater trust among colleagues and with clients.






Quality is ultimately maintained by people interacting with each other and continuously reinforcing best practices and standards. The skill of Nonviolent Feedback gives you the tools you need to give and receive authentic feedback while building trusting working relationships with your colleagues and clients.


Learning outcomes


By the end of the training, you will be able to:

  • distinguish between evaluations and nonviolent feedback

  • formulate your honest feedback in a nonviolent way

  • offer your feedback while fostering collaboration and connection

  • translate criticism into nonviolent and actionable language

  • ask for appreciative feedback from collegues and clients


My approach


Theoretical input is followed by self-reflection and practical exercises in pairs and small groups. I will work with examples from the interpreter's professional life, and you are welcome to bring your anonymized examples to practice with.
