Vera Institute’s Center on Victimization and Safety has a webinar coming up, Working with Interpreters: Enhancing Communications with Individuals Who Are Deaf and Hard of Hearing. The session will be held March 20th at 2pm ET. This is a great topic that often is missed in basic educational courses, so I encourage people to register. Don’t know if it’s archived, but I am guessing so. From the registration:
Participants will learn to distinguish between interpreter qualifications, certifications, and specializations to ensure quality and appropriate language access delivery. Presenters will discuss interpreter codes of conduct, the roles of interpreters. They will highlight the importance of confidentiality, impartiality, and accuracy. Participants will gain practical strategies for working with interpreters and improving working relationships. Special interpreting needs will also be discussed.
