Best Practices for working effectively with an interpreter in Mental Health Settings

Best Practices for working effectively with interpreters in Mental Health Settings

Best Practices for Working Effectively with Interpreters in Mental Health Settings
Instructor: Erha Agi Puspita Davis, MBA
Duration: 2 hours


This live instructor-led workshop was developed by Colorado Language Connection to help clinician have a better understanding on how to work effectively with interpreters. This training is ideal for clinician and clinic staff who frequently provide care to culturally and linguistically diverse populations and often rely on their bilingual staff or interpreters to help communicate with their  patients/clients. This training is also a safe space to ask questions about interpretation and/or language access in general.


As much as the interpreter wishes to deliver quality interpretation there are ways that the provider could help with the session to be more seamless. This would be the focus on our workshop.


As part of this training, you will learn:

  • What is a professional interpreter

  • Understanding the laws that govern language access and compliance

  • Understanding the need for language assessment for bilingual staff

  • The role of interpreters

  • Why a trained interpreter makes a difference

  • How to find good quality interpreters

  • How to use an interpreter effectively

  • The Do’s and Don’ts of working with interpreter
