It Breaks My Heart: Interpreting for Trauma


  • Ecker Business Center 6751 Columbia Gateway Drive Columbia, MD, 21046 United States (map)

Domestic violence… Sexual assault… Child abuse… Refugees… Every day interpreters witness terrible suffering in hospitals, schools and social services. Who is preparing them to cope?

This two-day workshop focuses on specific techniques, strategies and self-care practices for interpreters who encounter trauma in any setting. The workshop will highlight mental health, medical and legal services. The techniques explored can be applied to healthcare, schools and social service settings.
