Event description
Engaging with Multilingualism in Psychotherapy : workshop for mental health practitioners and applied linguistics researchers

About this Event

Mental health practitioners and applied linguistics researchers are invited to an interdisciplinary workshop exploring the therapeutic implications of multilingualism. Through a combination of research presentations and an interactive practitioner-led session, this half-day event aims to provide an overview of the issues which therapists and clients may be faced with when a client knows more than one language (without an interpreter present) and to foster interdisciplinary dialogue in this growing field for research and practice.

Speakers:

• Jean-Marc Dewaele (Birkbeck, University of London): Multilingualism, intercultural communication and emotion

• Louise Rolland & Sally Cook (Birkbeck, University of London): Client perspectives: the role of multilingualism in the therapeutic journey

• Chrysa Chlomisiou (University of Leicester): Bilingual therapists’ experiences of language switching in therapy

• Leigh Gardner (University of Salford): Counselling in English as an additional language

• Beverley Costa (Birkbeck, University of London & Pasalo): Case examples of psychotherapy across languages

• Panel: future directions for research and practice
