This workbook supports the training manual, Breaking Silence: Interpreting for Victim Services. It is intended as continuing education for both spoken and sign language interpreters. Like the training manual, the workbook focuses on how to interpret for victims of violent crime and trauma, with a focus on domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse.

More than 20 victim service providers in Washington, DC contributed to the activities and role plays in this workbook which are designed for use in training programs or independent study. Every chapter corresponds to a chapter in the training manual. The exercises, activities and role plays in the workbook support the relevant learning objectives in the training manual. Together, the manual and workbook can be used by interpreters for self-study or by trainers and educators seeking to build programs for trauma-informed interpreting.

Developed by Cross-Cultural Communications for Ayuda, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that supports vulnerable immigrants who seek to better their lives, this publication was made possible through funding from the District of Columbia Office of Victim Services & Justice Grants. It can be downloaded at no cost from Ayuda and our Resources for Interpreters section.
