Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do we have to answer all of the questions in the discussion guide?
A: Nope! The questions are there to provide a little structure if you need it. Most pairs or groups will find themselves spending a majority of their time on just a few questions.
Q: Can my group meet for two shorter sessions instead of one longer session?
A: Sure! The requirement for CEUs is that you spend a total of 2 hours checking out the bonus content and discussing the course.
You are welcome to break your discussion up into more than one session. For example, you might meet once to discuss the content of the course, and then again to check in on your progress implementing the strategies you learned. You decide what works best for you, just make sure you keep track of the dates and times that you meet.
Q: All of my colleagues are too busy for this right now, but I still want to have a group discussion. What do I do?
A: This is a great opportunity to expand your Community of Practice! You might consider forming a group with a mentor or mentee(s). You could also post to interpreter networks or social media and form a group with new people. You can meet in person or virtually, so consider forming a group with folks from outside your region.
Q: I already took the Healing Interpreter Burnout course but now my friends are taking it and I want to join their discussion group. Can I do that?
A: Yes! This group study option is for anyone currently or previously enrolled in the course. Even after you've completed the course, you still have access to the content and can go back to review it if needed.
