Working with Interpreters in a Mental Health Setting 20.7.22

 Registration is closed for this event
Free for Leeds Practitioners

If you work or volunteer in a mental health or wellbeing support practice, and may need to use interpreters for patients or service users with limited English language, this course will benefit you.

There are few better placed to offer this training. Azam has unique experience as both an interpreter herself, and a therapist working in a well established mental health setting for displaced migrants. Solace therapist Azam Imani shares her expert knowledge and tips about what makes working with interpreters successful - and prepares you to avoid some of the challenges, giving you new skills and confidence.


Presented by Azam Imani

Azam has 15 years of experience working in mental health settings in different roles, and 10 years experience as an interpreter in different talking therapy
programmes. Interpreting in 3 languages, Azam has a BA in translation, and has taught English to others as a second language. Azam is therapist with Solace in Leeds, and works regularly with interpreters and clients, and trains both interpreters and practitioners in the processes of working together.

Who is this training for?

This training is for anyone working in a mental health setting who may encounter someone with limited English language - in particular, therapists and support workers who work one to one, but non-direct support staff may also benefit from this training.
