Sign Language: Catalyst in the Therapeutic Process Training
The Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities Office of Deaf Services is pleased to announce the Sign Language: Catalyst in the Therapeutic Process training.
This training will be on January 28, 2022, from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm.
There are many potential barriers for people who are deaf and use sign language as their primary mode of communication when trying to access behavioral health and/or substance use disorder services. This workshop is designed to provide insight into some of the unique linguistic and cultural differences non-signing clinicians will encounter while working with individuals who are deaf. It will also provide tips on how to effectively build therapeutic relationships to ensure successful treatment outcomes.
If you regularly work with clients who are deaf and use sign language interpreter services, the DBHDD Office of Deaf Services encourages members of your agency to attend this virtual training.
