NSW181027: Identity & Ethics in Mental Health Settings

An Interactive Workshop for Experienced Interpreters

Saturday 27 October 2018    9:30 am - 12:30 pm AEDT

What do healthcare professionals in mental health settings expect of interpreters in maintaining a professional role?

This is an interactive workshop and we hope that you would be willing to share your personal experiences that may have challenged that professionalism.

Dr. Sochan would illustrate how depression, psychosis and post traumatic stress disorder can affect interpreting situations.

PD Level - Advanced  :  10 points  :  Logbook Section 2.20


Dr Christopher Sochan has been working in Psychiatry since 1975. His first  experience of working with interpreters was in 1972. Dr Sochan's father-in-law was an interpreter. He is monolingual with some experience in languages. He has been working in private practice since 1991.

He currently works  as a senior consultant psychiatrist in STARTTS since 1992 and followed a trip to USA where he was offered a teaching role in helping to set up a rudimentary psychiatric service for Cambodians. There, he learnt about confidentiality and privacy and working alongside an American Cambodian as his language facilitator and co-teacher. The experience had a powerful effect on him especially realising the influence of culture in what he was going to experience in years to come.

The reason he now works for STARTTS is to see if psychotherapy was possible across cultures and when you don’t share language. He has also had some association as a teacher at the institute of Psychiatry.
