TCRA Student Committee ~ Student Session

May 14, 2022 @ 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Own Your Story to Speak Up for the Record & Your Needs
by Ana Fatima Costa
This is a private event for TCRA Student Committee members only.

Learning how and when to speak up is a challenge for most of us. Take it up a few notches when it’s your job to capture a verbatim record. But first, you must master the skills to get out of school.

Learning how and when to speak up on the job or in life requires self-awareness; the ability to connect with what you feel and need in the moment while maintaining acute focus on listening and capturing the record; keeping track of exhibits; and myriad other tasks.

Like mastering steno, learning how and when to speak up is both an art and science, a skill that can be mastered. The same is true for mastering our thoughts and emotions.

Mastering a new skill requires repetition and practice, just like every other skill.

In this workshop, participants will explore:

• Using your breath to quiet your negative self-talk and connect with your body

• Understanding how feelings, needs, expectations, and assumptions drive your behavior

• How to own your story, sovereignty, and your voice in service of the record and your needs
