In my years as an interpreter educator, mentor and coach, I heard so many interpreters speak about their work struggles in private, expressing isolation, shame and sorrow. PSCPI gives us a chance to bring these challenges into the light and use them as a way to connect, collaborate and grow. In my own career, I have had seasons where I longed to know that my experiences were normal and to be encouraged to trust my heart as well as my head. PSCPI groups are built around integrating our emotional experiences and our head knowledge. I love seeing a group of interpreters have a collective realization that we are in this together. When I feel this kind of connection, I feel renewed, and I engage interpreting with greater purpose and joy. That is what I want to offer to others as a facilitator.
