We’re back this week with three new posts containing information about PLD members who shared their knowledge with attendees at the ATA 56th Annual Conference this year. Today we’d like to share the slides used by Giovana Boselli during her session: “An Alternative Tool to Help Linguists Release Anxiety.”
The speaker will discuss how the Emotional Freedom Technique can be used to deal with the anxiety (or fear) some professionals experience before an interpreting assignment, during a stressful project, or before an approaching deadline. After this session, attendees will have the information they need to use a simple but powerful tool to find the peace and confidence needed to achieve their goal. The session will include a 10-minute guided practice. Copies of the practice transcript will be available.
