Event description

Description

When interpreting in mental settings, linguistic and systemic barriers often pose the greatest

challenge. In order to better prepare contract interpreters for such environments, this 3-hour

continuing education course will give a basic overview of mental illness, as discussed in the

Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), and will offer participants practical

application through role play and pair work.


Course Objectives:

• To examine the modes of interpreting and roles of the interpreter in mental health settings

• To provide an overview of mental illnesses according to the DSM-IV (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders )

• To offer participants practice in terminology and material learned through group work and role-play
