About the workshop
This advanced skills workshop is designed for all practitioners working with interpreters in mental health settings – including both new to and currently working with interpreters.

The workshop will explore challenges and realities in the interpreting environment and look at strategies for adapting practice for working with interpreters in a variety of mental health settings.

Participants will receive hard copies of resources developed in the project Approaching work with interpreters in mental health settings (VTMH, 2019), including a Practice Tips Poster and Report

Please be aware that this is a two-part workshop. To complete the workshop, and to receive hard copies resources, participation at both days is required.
