SA191106 - Interpreting for survivors of torture and trauma

Goals & Strategies

Wednesday 6 November 2019    6:00 pm - 8:00 pm  (ACST)

Understanding the types of challenges survivors of torture and trauma may face and the therapeutic goals in torture and trauma work, is important for effective and meaningful interpreting. In addition, many of the experiences, concepts and objectives characterising this particular area can be found in many other interpreting contexts.

Our speaker from STTARS (Survivors of Torture and Trauma Assistance and Rehabilitation Service) will introduce the organisation and its client group. We will hear about the challenges of interpreting in a counselling context, particularly:

  • How do you describe/interpret counselling when the very concept of counselling may be unfamiliar to the client or interpreter

  • What are we trying to achieve? What types of approaches may be used? Why does the counsellor seem to keep asking the same question but in a slightly different way?

  • How interpreters help the therapeutic relationship/process by through the way that they interpret/choose their words and tone

  • Supports available to interpreters engaged by STTARS

PLEASE NOTE: Registrations and payments online via AUSIT website. On the night, only credit card payments can be accepted.

Please feel free to forward this to other interpreters and translators you know.

Registration: $25 for AUSIT members, NZSTI members and ASLIA members : Non-members $75 : Student Members $10
