Stress and burnout in video relay interpreting: An examination of ASL-English interpreters
This research project is about Video Relay Service (VRS) interpreters and the stress they experience at work, which can easily lead to burnout. A pilot study was completed along with the development of a survey instrument in Spring 2012 which showed fascinating results for stress in VRS. This year, the research will be expanded to RID Members nationwide. By doing this, a higher response rate will follow giving a more accurate picture of the VRS industry in America.
