Listening to families discuss traumatic experiences and potentially engage in child abuse reporting can be a challenging aspect of job responsibility when working with immigrant and refugee families who have children. Often mandatory reporting requires a strong team approach that includes  clinicians and interpreters working with these families. 

KEY OBJECTIVES


This workshop will cover:

  • Basic terms and definitions related to abuse reporting in Colorado

  • Cultural nuances and information for immigrant and refugee communities

  • Role and responsibilities of interpreters

  • Advocacy and self-care aspects of work related to child abuse reporting.  

 

By the end, you will be able to identify strategies for effective and efficient interpretation during visits with child abuse reporting needs, introduce/review language to support families and providers during child abuse reporting with immigrant and refugee families, and gain effective self-care coping mechanisms. 

TARGET AUDIENCE

This workshop, focusing on child abuse reporting with immigrant and refugee communities, is for anyone who is either an experienced interpreter, aspiring interpreter, or interested in becoming an interpreter specifically in mental health. We also encourage providers and case managers who want to improve
their collaboration with interpreters to join this workshop.

Instructor: Samantha Hoskinson

Postpartum Depression is a complex mental health condition that is particularly putting at risk immigrant mothers who do not speak the language of the new country. Insight into cultural beliefs about mental ill health is of utmost importance in these situations, as cultural expectations around motherhood and family roles may impact how postpartum depression is perceived and addressed within a community. Interpreters, being part of that community, should be sensitive to the emotional state of the person they are interpreting for, and be prepared to convey potentially difficult or sensitive information while maintaining professionalism.

 

Please note that the content provided in this workshop is for informational purposes only and does not replace professional advice or counseling.

Key Objectives:


Participants will be expected to engage in discussion and to walk away with:

  • Understanding of basic medical terms related to Postpartum Depression

  • Familiarity of common symptoms and triggers

  • Consideration of cultural beliefs, expectations, and attitudes that may influence the progression of treatment

  • Exploring different research techniques to provide accurate interpretation and aid in better concentration

  • Providing best practices for interpreters to be able to handle sensitive and emotional discussions

TARGET AUDIENCE

This workshop, focusing on interpreting for Postpartum Depression, is for anyone who is either an experienced interpreter, aspiring interpreter, or interested in becoming an interpreter specifically in mental health. As well as bilingual health care providers, bilingual case workers, and bilingual High School/College graduates interested in pursuing a career in the health care field who would like to utilize their Spanish language abilities.

INSTRUCTOR BIOGRAPHY
Samantha Hoskinson is a qualified bilingual Spanish-English interpreter with more than five years of experience in providing
mental health interpreting and support for Spanish-speaking clientele. Her first job was in a mental health hospital in Florida, which opened up to a lot of opportunities to advance her career in mental health.

Instructor: Samantha Hoskinson

Vicarious Trauma for Interpreters encourages participants to prioritize their well-being and contribute to the ongoing dialogue within the interpreting community. This workshop is aimed at sustaining the mental and emotional health of interpreters by increasing awareness, creating a network of support, and empowering interpreters by providing them with the tools they need to overcome the difficulties that comes with facilitating cross-cultural communication.

 

This topic is of critical importance because every interpreter will encounter stress and almost every one of them has experienced trauma while interpreting. Yet, even the difference between stress and vicarious trauma is not clear to most interpreters.

Key Objectives:


Participants will be expected to engage in discussion and to walk away with:

  • Compare and contrast stress and vicarious trauma for interpreters

  • Practice relaxation techniques for before, during, and after a session

  • Create a personalized step-by-step self-care plan to integrate into daily life and work

  • Identifying personal and professional strengths to enhance resilience

  • Fostering a sense of community among interpreters to share experiences and resources

As well as bilingual health care providers, bilingual case workers, and bilingual High School/College graduates interested in pursuing a career in the health care field who would like to utilize their Spanish language abilities.

Instructor: Samantha Hoskinson

Exposure to abuse and other adverse experiences increases a person’s lifelong potential for serious health problems; little to no self-esteem; a deep, pervasive sadness; problems bonding with others; and a tendency towards self-destruction. Unfortunately, because emotional abuse is often tolerated or because the abusive parents are very secretive in their abuse, emotionally abused children will assume that how they were treated at home was normal. Therefore, it is important for people, especially those working with such individuals, to be mindful of the fact that so many people come to a healthcare interaction with a history of trauma of abuse. 

By understanding a patient’s life experiences and working alongside trained healthcare providers, we as interpreters can contribute to an effective care plan that can offer those with Limited English Proficiency a chance to rebuild the connections and trust that were fractured by abuse and betrayal. Please note that the content provided in this workshop is for informational purposes only and does not replace professional advice or counseling.

Key Objectives:


Participants will be expected to engage in discussion and to walk away with:

  • Defining emotional abuse and understanding the various forms
    Recognizing signs and patterns of emotional abuse in interpersonal relationships

  • Exploring the impact of emotional abuse on individuals

  • Discussing the cultural factors that may influence the experience and perception of emotional abuse

  • Providing strategies and resources for interpreters to support individuals as well as self-care when working in emotionally challenging situations

TARGET AUDIENCE

This workshop, focusing on mental health interpreting, is for anyone who is either an experienced interpreter, aspiring interpreter, or interested in becoming an interpreter specifically in mental
health. As well as bilingual health care providers, bilingual case workers, and bilingual High School/College graduates interested in pursuing a career in the health care field who would like to utilize their Spanish language abilities.

Interpreters may feel increased emotional stress due to difficulties in handling traumatic content from individuals with PTSD. Learning about PTSD, an understanding of it and how it affects people, allows for greater empathy and compassion towards individuals who have experienced trauma. Throughout this workshop, interpreters will better understand the crucial role they play in providing access to health care for those with PTSD.

 

Together we will discuss different skills we can use to ensure our needs as interpreters, as well as those of the individuals, are being met with sensitivity and understanding. Interpreters will walk away from this workshop feeling empowered in such an emotionally difficult subject. 

Key Objectives:


Participants will be expected to engage in discussion and to walk away with:

  • Clear understanding of PTSD, including its causes, symptoms, and impact on individuals

  • Emphasize cultural sensitivity when working with individuals who experienced trauma, using skills such as active listening and a trauma-informed approach

  • How to identify potential triggers for individuals with PTSD and how to create a safe environment during interpreting sessions

  • The importance of maintaining confidentiality and respecting the privacy of individuals with PTSD

  • Self-care techniques to manage emotional well-being such as professional boundaries and resources and support

Instructors: Kara Napolitano, Research and Training Manager, Laboratory to Combat Human Trafficking

Immigrants and refugees have unique vulnerabilities to
potential labor or sexual exploitation, which can include wage
theft and human trafficking. Immigration status is often used
as a form of coercion to elicit compliance and fraudulent
promises of work are often used to recruit individuals into an
exploitative situation. Often victims do not understand their
rights, may have their identification confiscated, and may not
feel safe to report.


This presentation will cover the complexities of disclosure
for immigrant communities as well as the legal recourse a
survivor can take to pursue justice, with a focus on trauma
and trauma-informed care and the diversity of lived
experience.

KEY OBJECTIVES

  • Understand the nuances of both labor and sex trafficking in Colorado communities from both a legal and lived experience perspective.

  • Understand the complexities of disclosure and identification for survivors of trafficking, especially for immigrant communities.

  • Understand the legal and civil recourse that a trafficking survivor can pursue in Colorado.

 

TARGET AUDIENCE:
Colorado interpreters, bilingual case workers, community navigators- especially those who may be working with marginalized individuals who have experienced violence.
