“Interpreting for Victims of Crime: An Understanding of the Victims’ Characteristics, the Parties Involved and the Effects on the Interpreters’ Role and Experiences”

This event has been approved for 1.00 General CIE credit hour by the Supreme Court of Ohio. 

The presenter: Dr. Rita Pavone, PhD, MPhil, MA, CCMS, the founder of Minerva Translation and Language Services and OnPoint Research and Consulting. She has been an interpreter and a translator for more than 20 years, serving in a variety of sectors and working with multiple language pairs. 

The webinar will provide an overview of sensitive topics such as victimization and re-victimization, victim precipitation, maladaptive coping and the challenging rapport-building and balance of power among the participating parties. Furthermore, some attention will be devoted to the interpreter’s temptation to embrace an advocacy call and the phenomenon of emotional dissonance, which may lead to depersonalization and burnout.
