 Product Description

Deaf Americans have identified healthcare as the most difficult setting in which to obtain a qualified interpreter. Yet relatively little attention has been given to developing evidence-based resources and a standardized body of knowledge to educate healthcare interpreters.

The first section of this volume begins with developing domains and competencies toward a teaching methodology for interpreters for the medical and mental health field. Other chapters discuss a discourse approach that relies on analyzing actual transcripts and recordings to train healthcare interpreters a model mental health interpreter training course in Alabama using a Demand-Control Schema for experiential learning the risk of vicarious trauma to interpreters online educational opportunities and interpreting for deaf health care professionals.

The second section offers four perspectives on education including healthcare literacy of the clients the education of Deaf interpreters the development of standards for spoken-language healthcare interpreters and the perspectives of healthcare interpreter educators in Europe. The range and depth of In Our Hands takes significant strides in presenting educational opportunities that can enhance the critical services provided by healthcare interpreters to deaf clients.
