Working with Interpreters
This free, self-paced learning module aims to provide an overview of the steps to consider when working with interpreters in mental health settings, as well as material which assists practitioners to reflect upon roles in interpreted encounters.
Practice implementations are explored for the consumer, family, interpreter and practitioner.
The module forms one component of a suite of resources developed by VTMH as part of the Approaching work with interpreters in mental health settings project (2019). More information about this is outlined in the module.
We launched a new suite of resources to support mental health practitioners working with interpreters in October 2019. The resources were developed in consultation with stakeholders as part of our Approaching work with interpreters in mental health settings project and include a new series of educational videos, available to view via our free online learning module or when participating in an advanced face-to-face workshop. Watch the video below to find out more.
