This workshop looks at Deaf Clients in terms of having Deaf Gains rather than Hearing Loss as well as the power that each of us hold as interpreters in the interpreting setting as it relates to cultural differences. This includes not only Deaf/Hearing, but also potentially racial, economic, or age differences. Each of these have an impact on the interpreting environment in a positive/negative manner, depending upon on knowledge and awareness that these cultural differences exist and the manner in which we manage occurrences of cultural clashes.
