Collaborating for Equitable Language Access for Survivors of Sexual Violence: (3) Interpreter Services During the Forensic Interview

 In part 3 of this webinar series, the IAFN has continued their collaboration with Forensic Interviewer, Hannah Chin, and the API-GBV for the continued opportunity to enhance methods for which services are provided to survivors with limited English proficiency after they have experienced personal violence. Participants will be provided with an overview of the Forensic Interview and its process. The presenters will provide guidance for best practice for Forensic Interviewers, Multidisciplinary Teams, and Interpreters when working with clients that have limited English proficiency. They will also share administrative considerations that will highlight ways to effectively plan for the use of interpreters within this setting.
