Working with Adults with Mental Illness

The purpose of this course is to expose the participants to the difficulties of communicational processes with individuals who have mental illness who can present significant challenges to the interpreter.
Individuals with mental illness may exhibit symptoms such as using phonetically or grammatically unstructured speech and experiencing hallucinations and delusion, being disorganized in their thought and their communicational processes.

Because interpreters serve as active participants in the court environment with various responsibilities, questions arise regarding the factors that contribute to their decision-making while interpreting in this setting.
This class takes a look at such obstacles and analyze potential interventions from different perspectives that may be applied to the resolution of conflicts arising from the interpreting work.

This workshop, instructed by Pablo Suñé, Board Certified Music Therapist, will offer interpreters the opportunity to understand the causes of voice care problems related to misuse in the professional practice. Interpreters will also have an opportunity to participate in progressive muscle relaxation and diaphragmatic breathing exercises as well as analyzing their voices in the recording studio. In this workshop, interpreters will acquire the basic skills to prevent voice problems.

In this new workshop, we will have more time to enjoy more activities, warm-ups, progressive muscle relaxation, intercostal breathing exercises, and our favorite part of the seminar: analyzing your voice in our recording studio. You will have the opportunity to analyze your voice in a recording studio as you play fun and educational activities with your colleagues.

Many interpreters in California who already attended our “Voice Care for Interpreters” class have been experiencing the benefits of participating in this continuing education seminar that we offer since 2013.

If you never took this class before, we guarantee you will have a great educational experience, having a great time with your co-workers, and acquire the understanding to identify the challenges of vocal productions and apply basic voice care skills in your daily practice.

If you already attended our “Voice Care for Interpreters” class, you may take this course and receive 6 (six) additional Continuing Education Credits approved by your State Court. It will be the right class for practicing and reinforcing the skills we have been working on before.  



This seminar offers 12 CIMCE credits for Court Interpreters and 1.2 credits for Medical Interpreters for those attending both days ($290.00). Or you can also enroll for one day only and receive 6 CIMCE or 0.6 credits for medical interpreters for $150.00
