This initiative is presented by AUSIT and is supported by the Tasmanian and Australian Governments under the National Partnership on COVID-19 Domestic and Family Violence Responses.
It is essential that all interpreters are adequately equipped to meet the need of their culturally and linguistically diverse clients for specialised language services, especially conveying themes of family violence in various professional settings. Disclosure of family violence may occur in a variety of settings when interpreting - not only in ones such as emergency services, the magistrates court of women's services.
The workshops will include lectures delivered by renown academics in the field, who will be addressing all key issues including:
- Safety for Interpreters - Practical Work & Dilemmas
- Physical & Psychological Effects of Family Violence and Abuse
- Coercive Behaviour & Harassment
- What happens in Court?
- Meetings with Community Services
