Interpreting Practices in a Mental Health Facility is available as in-person lecture course or a virtual classroom course. The course is designed for employees and teams who work with international and multilingual populations and interpreters in a mental health facility setting. By the end of the course, participants will have a better working knowledge of the unique challenges that interpreters experience while on the job and best practices for working with foreign language interpreters and multilingual clients or patients.
The Interpreting Practices in a Mental Health Facility program
The course is structured to be patient and compassion-centric—working in a mental health facility often requires extra training, patience, understanding, and skill. Course topics include the differences between bilingual speakers and trained interpreters, safety while on the job, the boundaries included in the role of an interpreter, and “dos and don’ts” for working with interpreters for extended (over four hours) sessions. As interpreters who work in a mental health setting often spend full days with patients, it is especially important to have a thorough understanding of interpreting ethics and professional division.
Interpreting Practices in a Mental Health Facility program Duration
The course is timed to last for 30 minutes and consists of an in-person or virtual classroom lecture personalized for your team and/or company.
