     This intensive, five-hour workshop with Bethany Gehman is intended to give interpreters the oppurtunity to examine sexuality issues, explore values/attitudes/beliefs about sexuality, identify situations where skills with sexuality interpreting would be useful, and apply what was learned to interpreting practice. Participants will be equipped with appropriate and effective tools to become more comfortable with interpreting sexuality content. This workshop does not only discuss sexuality issues, but also to discuss the importance of consent. 

    Audience & Accommodations:
