February 2017: Using interpreters in social work: what can practitioners do to work effectively with interpreters?

David Westlake and Rebecca Jones,
The Tilda Goldberg Centre,
University of Bedfordshire

This workshop explores how social workers can adapt their practice to work effectively with clients who require interpreters. The training aims to provide practical strategies to improve the way practitioners communicate using an interpreter. Based on data gathered from a recent research study of interpreters in child and family social work, the session uses recordings of direct practice with clients and role plays to develop practical skills. It is suitable for practitioners and support workers from both adult social work and child and family social work who work with interpreters as part of their role.
