Cultural Competence bundle for members of The Providencia Group
All course content is presented in English, with multiple opportunities to practice all your working languages. That makes the program perfect for interpreters who speak or sign ANY language.
Course description: Cultural competence is often expected of interpreters – but how to perform it safely and effectively? Cultural Competence for Interpreters provides a clear framework for beginning and experienced interpreters to make culturally responsive decisions when and how to intervene during a session.
Learn how implicit bias can impact the interpreting encounter—and what to do about it. Weigh the consequences of intervening or not when communication breaks down during the session. Develop and practice scripts to perform cultural mediation that is both sensitive and respectful – and supports communicative autonomy.
