  1. I love the comment Ineke Crezee made at the end of the video – it’s a wonderful thing how we can learn from many different voices through Voices Academy . Very good presentation.

  2. Powerful and very well presented. A must presentation to have for both interpreters and health providers. Awareness and self care are necessary for the interpreter in order to provide a good service. I would like to add spending sometime of reflection after a difficult assignment if possible or at the end of the day. Asking ourselves questions about what was difficult about the case, how we could have done it better, how it is affecting us and how could we cope now and in the future with similar situations. Thanks!!

  3. This helped me not feel alone in my encounters with refugees and not undermine the feelings and stresses this entails. It was not only educational but also therapeutic! Thank you
