By the nature of the work they do, interpreters help facilitate communication for vulnerable populations in our society. To assist interpreters in being prepared to provide language access to these groups, we will explore trauma from the perspective of the interpreter. Participants will be introduced to the concept of trauma and how it changes the way individuals think and communicate. For interpreters to be effective members of the care team, we will also discuss two concepts related to the care for survivors: Trauma-Informed Care and Trust Based Relationship Intervention (TBRI) and is following SAMHSA Principles and Guidance for a Trauma-Informed Approach (TIA). To support this, we will touch on how language and cultural competency play an important role in delivering trauma-informed care. Finally, attendees will learn strategies for managing difficult interpreting encounters when working with survivors of trauma.

ASL interpretation for this webinar is sponsored by MasterWord.
