DEAF FOCUS’ INTERPRETERS WORKSHOP

“Embracing Differences.”
A brief overview of Pro-Tactile Interpreting for individuals who are DeafBlind, a consumer panel, and our featured presentation about working with LGBTQ+ individuals. See more details below.

The Deaf community is as diverse as it is beautiful, and this year we want to celebrate the differences that makes us beautiful. We will be holding a workshop to learn about Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and the many identities within these umbrellas. (LGBTQ+)

We are excited to welcome Capi Landreneau, LCSW a gender therapist with a private practice in Baton Rouge. Capi has provided training and education for clinicians and other professionals at all levels so that those in a position to affirm and support LGBTQ+ individuals are knowledgeable and prepared to do so.

One of our LGBTQ+ community members, Blaise Perry who is also DeafBlind, will provide a 60-minute Basic Pro-Tactile Awareness Training and will participate in our consumer panel with other members of the Deaf community.

RID CEUs will be provided.

Registration is $55.00 (You can pay on eventbrite.com or come to our office to make a payment) Contact us at info@deaffocus.org.

Lunch on your own. Yvette Marie is a nice restaurant next door with an interesting antique store inside with an excellent menu.
