Historically, interpreters in the educational system and community have struggled to find our voice in which to discuss our work. With educational and community practitioners in mind, utilizing Dr. Robyn Dean and Dr. Robert Pollard’s work on Karasek’s Demand/Control-Schema, alongside Socratic questioning, we will explore
how roles and responsibilities are balanced by providing a language in which we can talk, empowering dialogue in a safe and supportive system, with a demonstration on how this can work. (Presented in spoken English, ASL interpreters will be provided.)

Presenter: Lynne Lumsden, CI, CT, SC:L, QMHI-S, has been interpreting for more than 25 years, specializing in mental health and legal settings. With two generalist certifications, she holds the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf’s Specialist Certificate: Legal, and the Qualified Mental Health Interpreter-Supervisor Certificate, pursuant to Chapter 580-3-24 of Alabama’s State code, and has demonstrated competence as a Supervisor for the Qualified Mental Health Interpreter Training Institute administered by Alabama State. She is also a current member of the MHIT Institute’s interpreting team and staff in Montgomery, Alabama. Also, as a brain bleed survivor, Lynne understands language dysfluency as a patient which offers insight in a variety of settings. She
currently chairs WSRID’s Legal Professional Standards Committee and is the ASL Liaison appointment to the Washington State Supreme Court Interpreter Commission. She has presented on local, regional, and national levels on mental health interpreting. She runs, writes, and creates art in Spokane, Washington. PREVAIL!
