HIS Sign recently received the following request from Pauline Stahlbrodt, a pre-doctoral student in counseling psychology at Walden University. Pauline is seeking medical ASL interpreters at HIS Sign and others who would like to participate in her survey. Here is Pauline’s full message:
Hello, my name is Pauline Stahlbrodt, and I am a pre-doctoral student in counseling psychology at Walden University. I am conducting research exploring the experiences of medical interpreters in mental health settings and whether or not they have experienced vicarious traumatization or vicarious post traumatic growth in the context of their work. If you are such a professional, please take the time to complete a survey by clicking on the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/MedicalInterpreters
More information regarding the research can be found at the link mentioned above. It is the hope of this researcher that the information gained through this study will help to further the ongoing professional development of medical interpreters and add another important voice to the field of trauma research. I would expect the survey to take about 30 minutes, which I understand is a significant amount of time and I thank you in advance. If you know of anyone else who may be interested in participating in this survey please feel free to forward this message.
