Demand-Control Schema for Health Care Interpreters
Taking a Closer Look at Health Care Interpreting Through the Lens of the Demand/Control Schema
SATURDAY APRIL 5, 2014

Do you find your interpreting work in health care settings stressful at times? Illnesses, diagnoses, sterile settings, provider/patient interactions, vocabulary... All of these elements of the work, and many more, can challenge us on a daily basis. Why does our work seem more stressful at time, and less stressful at others? The Demand/Control Schema developed by Robin Dean and Robert Pollard (2001) is a helpful tool for looking at our work, specifically the challenges we face and the options we have to respond to those challenges. It can help us understand the choices we have and the scope of our decision-making, particularly in terms of the consequences of those decisions. During this workshop we will, through lecture, small and large group discussion:
- introduce the Demand Control Schema as a framework for analyzing interpreting work
- apply the schema to health care interpreting situations using picture analyses
- identify challenges of the work and possible responses interpreters have to address the demands of the job
- discuss our decision-making latitude while interpreting
- identify ways we can use this schema to enhance our professional discussions with colleagues.
