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.
