American Sign Language (ASL) Interpreters

Although psychotherapists for the deaf are trained to use sign language, situations may arise in which a sign language interpreter is needed. If this collaboration is optimal, it can generate a certain “therapeutic power” in therapy sessions. Achieving this depends largely on the interplay between the therapist and the interpreter, which in our case is the result of literature research and our experiences during the last 17 years. We analyze this special collaborative relationship, which has several dimensions and recurrent themes like, the role conception of the interpreter, situational interpreting, organizing the interpretation setting, or managing therapeutic phenomena during therapy sessions.

Winner interpreters are encouraged to adhere to high standards of ethical practice, which includes ensuring that they have appropriate training in mental health interpreting prior to accepting work in such settings.  Interpreters are prepared for a variety of group dynamics including but not limited to: hearing clinicians working directly with deaf consumers; hearing clinicians working with deaf consumers and their hearing family members or partners; and deaf mental health professionals with various interpreting needs.
