EVENT #15:

NEW RELEASE: MENTAL HEALTH & DEAFNESS
DR. CATHY CHOVAZ (Deaf Author from London)

Please view the release of Dr. Chovaz' new book "Mental Health and Deafness".

MENTAL HEALTH AND DEAFNESS
Margaret du Feu and Cathy Chovaz
From the Oxford Series of Professional Perspectives on Deafness:
Evidence and Applications

The assessment and treatment of mental health concerns for Deaf
individuals has been largely ignored and/or misunderstood by many
mental health professionals.

In Mental Health and Deafness, Margaret du Feu and Cathy Chovaz
seek to rectify this by outlining current issues surrounding mental
health and deafness.

The book provides valuable information to professionals interested
in expanding their knowledge of mental health and deafness and
the authors share their extensive clinical experience with the
reader through a variety of case studies.

The authors primarily focus on individuals who were born deaf or
deafened early in life, but also describe the mental health aspects
of acquired deafness and individuals with both deafness and blindness.

Mental Health and Deafness begins by describing the historical and
social context of deafness, and follows the life journey of a Deaf
individual, focusing on parental reactions, language acquisition,
and mental health disorders of children, adolescents, adults and
the elderly. Chapters cover relevant issues regarding assessment,
treatment, and forensic and legal issues.

The book concludes with an overview of service development.

EVENT #17:

EXPANDING THE VISION: OIS INTERPRETER INTERNSHIP PROGRAM

Session begins Monday, September 15th, 2014 (Toronto)

CANADIAN HEARING SOCIETY/SOCIETE CANADIENNE DE L'OUIE

EXPANDING THE VISION: OIS INTERPRETER INTERNSHIP PROGRAM

New Higher Focus on Diagnostics
As the field of interpreting is paying more attention to getting
to meaning and intent, the internship program has also shifted
its focus from a bridging program to one that takes interpreters
and the work they do, to a higher level. The focus is on diagnostics.

The new vision of IIP is one that looks at analyzing meaning.
Trainers scaffold their teaching of language learning with intensive,
critical discourse analysis of L1 and L2.

State-of-the-art, innovative technology allows interpreters to
objectively view the work they do. Underpinning the program is
a focus on ethical decision-making models.

Interested in Taking Your Interpretation to the Next Level ?
IIP is accepting applications for the September 2014 intake.
The September intake screens for our next session which begins
September 15th, 2014. Application deadline for our next session
is July 4th, 2014.

For an application and further information regarding the program,
please visit our web site at www.chs.ca under "Services, Ontario
Interpreting Services, Interpreter Internship Program".
The application process no longer requires that candidates take
the OIS Screening. An IIP Entrance Screening will be offered to
candidates as an initial diagnostic. The IIP Entrance Screening
can be taken in Toronto or in your home community.

Register for our Interpreter Internship Program at: www.chs.ca/

Applications can be sent to Sheila Johnston at: sjohnston@chs.ca
or you can contact Sheila at: (416) 928-2500 ext 313.

Lori Cooper: Born and raised in an all-hearing family, she was deafened at age 2. After years of speech therapy and isolation; being incessantly bullied; and struggled with identity, she barely graduated from high school and went to a Deaf vocational school in Amherst, Nova Scotia. That's where at the age of 19, Lori finally gained access to sign language and entry into the Deaf world.

During this sometimes-difficult enculturation process, she developed a passion to build bridges between Deaf and hearing worlds. She will share with you her experiences, her surprising findings and common-sense recommendations to improve and cement work and social relationships between Deaf and hearing people. She has been working on the Deaf side of bridge-building, for past 9 years, as an employment specialist at the Employment Access, project of Coalition of Persons with Disabilities. The Coalition for Persons with Disabilities' headquarters is in Mississauga, Ontario where she developed and taught her Employment Path ! ® workshop series, the only one of its kind in Canada.
