Virtual Training: Interpreting for In-Patient Mental Health

Join the International Institute of Buffalo for an In-Patient Mental Health Interpreter workshop on Saturday, August 12th from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (USA/Canada).

This four-hour course covers interpreting for patients in an in-patient mental health facility.

Training and education will include, but are not limited to:

  • The differences between out-patient and in-patient mental health
  • What to expect when working in an in-patient setting
  • The interpreter’s role, boundaries, and how to not impede treatment
  • Safety protocols
  • Terminology, vocabulary

This training is designed for interpreters who currently work in an in-patient setting or who are curious about getting started in such an environment. The goal is to enhance your knowledge, understanding, and comfort level when working in an in-patient setting.

Please note that this training will be conducted in English and will focus exclusively on the Mental Health Counseling and Psychiatry industry in the United States of America. Terms, practices, attitudes, and beliefs may be very different where you live and should only be applied when interpreting for American clients.
