Interpreting for Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Cases consists of three self-paced interactive modules (30-60 minutes in length) guided by a virtual coach. Participants in the course will be immersed in first-person encounters and interactive learning. They can move through the course with several navigational tools and may return to various learning points.
Modules 1 and 2 offer a learning experience for interpreters as well as other professionals in the justice system who may encounter domestic violence and sexual assault survivors with limited English proficiency. The third module focuses on interpreter skills and knowledge of important ethical considerations for interpreting in cases involving domestic violence and sexual assault. Although this information is designed for interpreters, professionals who work with interpreters in domestic violence and sexual assault cases also will find it helpful.
