Gain a deeper understanding of all those who work in a healthcare setting. Develop the symbiotic relationship needed to improve the communication process, the cultural experience and, ultimately, the outcome for the patient. Hear about interpreter stress and how to deal with it. Recognize the difference between interpreting in a medical setting versus a mental health setting. Learn the specialized vocabulary and interpreting techniques needed to succeed in mental health encounters.
