This is a two-day course in Parramatta on 11-12 March 2019 organised by the NSW Education Centre Against Violence. The course will run again in September 2019.
Interpreting for people of migrant and refugee backgrounds who experience domestic and family violence can present particular challenges. The NSW Domestic Violence Death Review Team (2015) recommended that interpreters be educated to understand the complexities and dynamics of domestic violence. Therefore, appropriately trained interpreters are critical to help victims disclose and seek help for themselves and their children. Migrant and refugee women experience additional barriers such as those associated with language, cultural traditions and community attitudes, shame and fear of consequences of disclosure. These can impact on the interpreting environment. This 2-day trauma-informed course provides a safe learning environment for interpreters to explore issues related to the nature and dynamics of domestic and family violence, the effects on victims and the impact this can have on their role as interpreters. Other content areas include: the importance of maintaining professional boundaries and ethical practice within the Interpreters and Translators Code of Ethics; effective strategies in working with healthcare and other service providers in the context of domestic and family violence; and roles and responsibilities in relation to relevant policy and protocols. Eligible for 40 professional development points under NAATI re-validation process.
