Interpreting for Victims of Crime

Interpreting for Victims of Crime

Our third course due to be released this year, the Interpreting for Victims of Crime is a national qualification,  exclusive to DPSI Online with Helena El Masri. The course begins on the 1st of May 2020, with the enrolment process held between the 4th of March and 24thof April 2020.

This course leads to a Level 4 qualification, and is a must for anyone working in emotionally charged cases where trauma is a common occurrence, or very distressing settings.

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, you will need to have achieved at least a level 3 qualification in interpreting, and provide proof of this during an interview to be accepted onto the course.
