NOTIS’ Community Interpreters Division presents

Interpreting for Survivors of Domestic Violence 

Presented by Yuliya Speroff

What is it about? Every year, more than 10 million men and women in the U.S. experience domestic violence. Domestic violence can happen to anyone regardless of class, gender, race, age, disability, religion or educational background. Medical interpreters may find themselves interpreting for survivors of domestic violence in a wide variety of settings - from an emergency room to a counseling session. Interpreting in such encounters can present unique challenges to interpreters in terms of terminology, the importance of upholding the ethical principles, and vicarious trauma.

After attending this class, the participants will be able to:
- Define domestic violence and related concepts
- Give examples of domestic abuse
- Explain how domestic violence affects immigrant victims
- Discuss challenges related to interpreting for survivors of domestic violence and strategies for overcoming them
- Practice with converting key terminology into their working language(s) 

What is a Webshop? A webshop is just like an interactive onsite class, but held online through Zoom. During a webshop, you can ask questions and engage in discussion. You may be divided into “break-out” rooms where you’ll be working with other participants on exercises or on practicing a skill. There may be quizzes and polls. So, while there may be some PowerPoint and lecture, this is not like your typical webinar. Your full attention and participation is expected; that’s what makes it fun!

When? Wednesday, June 7th, 2022, 6pm to 8pm PST
