Online Learning Resource - Working with interpreters (Launched in 2017 and Updated in 2019))


Divided into Four sections, ‘Orientate’, ‘Practice’, ‘Steps’ and 'Further Resources', this module gives an overview of roles, policy and accreditation standards; practice implications for the client, family, practitioner, and interpreter; and a step-by-step guide to the process from booking an interpreter to debriefing after the session.

The module is based on, and incorporates, some of the materials from the Approaching Work with Interpreters in Mental Health Settings resource developed by VTMH in 2019.

This resource is designed for practitioners working in a range of mental health settings, and aims to promote and enhance ways of working with interpreters.
