NSW190615 : Emotionally Charged Situations

Interpreting in Emotionally Charged Situations

What can these situations teach us about the interpreting?

Saturday 15 June    9:30 am - 4:30 pm  AEST

Part 1: Interpreting in the Public Sector

What to expect when interpreting for the police, in court, in health care and social service settings, and how can we be “good” interpreters in each of these settings?

Part 2:  Neutrality, impartiality and emotional labor in interpreting

Can these concepts go hand in hand or do they conflict with each other? Can interpreting be emotional labor if interpreters perform their job with neutrality and impartiality? Through case-based discussions in smaller groups, we will explore these issues and discuss what this means for us as practising interpreters. We will also talk about the emotional load that comes with interpreting in sensitive situations and useful ways interpreters can cope with this.
