Event description
This event tackles how interpreters and charities can collaborate and cope when working with vulnerable people and emotional interactions.

About this Event

This event will bring together interpreters, psychotherapists, charity workers and academics, to discuss (1) how charities can collaborate effectively with interpreters working with vulnerable populations, and (2) how interpreters can cope with highly-charged emotional interactions.

This event will draw on the applicants’ research in the areas of interpreting and emotional processing in order to disseminate and exploit information on coping mechanisms and ethical interpreting practices with volunteer linguists working with charities, and invite reflections from a wide range of participants who are involved in the provision of interpreting services for vulnerable citizens on the fringes of society for whom English is not their first language.

To this end, the event will include presentations with invited speakers (e.g. psychotherapist, interpreter, researcher) and opportunities for informal discussions and reflections from participants. The hope is to create wider awareness and understanding of this type of work and to provide participants with resources that they can make use of and benefit from when working in these culturally and linguistically sensitive contexts.

Please note that this event will be live streamed and made available to the public via the internet. Audience members are participants in this process.

Please find below a provisional programme for the event. Please note that this programme is subject to change.

The hashtag we will use for the event is: #1ntOnTheFringe
