Presenter: Roger C. Williams

Mental health interpreting has developed a “toolbox” of specialized techniques for working with the complex material inherent to that setting. These techniques can aid interpreters working in many other settings. This workshop will discuss the techniques and provide examples of how they can be used in educational, legal and general medical interpreting. 

Mr. Williams is the Director for Deaf Services with the South Carolina Department of Mental Health. He received his B.S.W. from the Rochester Institute of Technology and his M.S.W., specializing in community mental health, from the University of Illinois. Mr. Williams is a S.C. Licensed Master Social Worker and holds an RID Certificate of Transliteration and an SCAD/NAD IAP Level 5 and has been recognized at the state and national level for his leadership in mental health services within the Deaf community.
