Interpreting in Domestic Violence Settings Webinar - Part 2

This webinar is part 2 of 2 of the 'Interpreting in Domestic Violence Settings' series. It is highly recommended that you register/complete Part 1 before accessing this webinar.


The Royal Commission into Family Violence published six recommendations relating to interpreting services. The final report concluded that interpreting services were inadequate and highlighted the need for training in relation to understanding the nature and dynamics of family violence.

Disclosures and discussions of domestic violence may occur in a range of service settings – not only in expected ones such as police, family court or women’s services. It is important that all interpreters, regardless of their usual field of practice, are appropriately prepared in order to meet the needs of professionals, CALD clients and their own practice when working in these settings.

This webinar will have a hands-on approach with activities in relation to the different settings responding to domestic violence where interpreters are engaged.

Topics Covered:

  • Settings and aims of professionals.

  • Discourse implications for interpreters.

  • Ethics - Role

  • Activity - case studies.

Who would this be useful for?
