American Sign Language/English Interpreters may experience many different injuries including emotional, mental and physical injuries by interpreting. Without the use of self-care these experiences may lead to more serious conditions that may cause an interpreter to leave the profession. This thesis will name some of the injuries that might happen while interpreting including Emotional, Mental and Physical. It will also list different ways that self-care can help prevent those injuries from occurring as well as look at a few different techniques for self-care that will hopefully help an interpreter prevent or reduce the risk of experiencing these kinds of injuries while working in the profession.
