Event description

Description

This half-day workshop will provide delegates with a supportive and safe space to reflect on the challenges that may be faced when Interpreting for clients who have experienced trauma. We will start with defining trauma and the common ways this can impact on individuals, their behaviour and communication

We will consider the important role Interpreters have when facilitating communication between workers and those affected by trauma and we will look at key skills and good practice for interpreters in this field to enable Interpreters to support this process as effectively as possible.

As working in close contact with traumatised individuals and traumatic narratives inevitably has an affect on Interpreters, we will explore how the Interpreter might be personally affected, how to recognise when the work is impacting too much and consider strategies to minimise the negative impact on the interpreter.

Objectives

By the end of this workshop, delegates will be able to:

  • Define trauma, retraumatisation and vicarious traumatisation
  • Explore the impact of trauma on the Interpreting relationship
  • Describe good practice for Interpreters when working with survivors of trauma
  • Consider the impact on the Interpreter of working with traumatised individuals

Target Audience

This workshop will be relevant to Interpreters working in any setting with individuals who have been affected by trauma. Such settings may include legal, health, social work, police and community settings.
