Our third course due to be released this year, Interpreting for Victims of Crime, is a national qualification exclusive to DPSI Online with Helena El Masri. The course begins on the 1 May 2020, with the enrolments open between 4 March and 24 April 2020.
This course leads to a Level 4 qualification and is a must for anyone working in emotionally-charged cases or very distressing settings where trauma is a common occurrence.
During the 12 week course candidates will learn about interpreting for victims and survivors of violent crime, domestic and child abuse, torture and modern slavery. Additionally, they will acquire the necessary skills and knowledge to become a trauma-informed interpreter, to understand bias and manage effective cultural interventions. Vicarious trauma will also be discussed, with interpreters learning to recognise the signals and develop a self-care plan for interpreting in traumatic settings.
This course is not suitable for beginners – to be able to enrol on this course you will need to have achieved at least a level 3 qualification in interpreting and you will need to provide proof of this during the pre-course interview to be accepted onto the course.
