DescriptionThis course reviews and addresses technical and ethical challenges that may arise while practicing the skills taught in Foundations of Professional Interpretation in Health and Human Services - Level 1*. Participants will engage in intense ethical problem-solving, basing their actions on the NCIHC's National Standards of Practice for Interpreters in Health Care. Participants will learn the second phase of their plan of study begun in Level 1, which outlines how to write a fair role play, participate both as interpreter and active listener, rate an interpretation, and provide constructive feedback in a kind manner that is useful to the student for improving skills. Students who speak languages other than Spanish will write role plays in English and will interpret into their target languages, if two or more students who speak that language are present. Parroting exercises in English will be utilized when only one student is present who speaks a language other than Spanish. Participants will practice positioning, transparency, memory building, replication of style and tone, and pre-session delivery.
Note: Only individuals who have completed Level I may attend and must bring their Level I Manual.
Please note: The modules in this series are not interchangeable with those in the Cross-Cultural Communications, LLC (CCC) Interpreter Series offered in January and February 2019.
