Title: Dialogue Interpreting in Mental Health
URL: http://www.rodopi.nl/senj.asp?BookId=USLC+19
Series Title: Utrecht Studies in Language and Communication 19
Description:

In this era of globalisation, the use of interpreters is becoming
increasingly important in business meetings and negotiations, government
and non-government organisations, health care and public service in general.

This book focuses specifically on the involvement of interpreters in mental
health sessions. It offers a theoretical foundation to aid the
understanding of the role-issues at stake for both interpreters and
therapists in this kind of dialogue. In addition to this, the study relies
on the detailed analysis of a corpus of videotaped therapy sessions. The
theoretical foundation is thus linked to what actually takes place in this
type of talk. Conclusions are then drawn about the feasibility and
desirability of certain discussion techniques.

"Dialogue Interpreting in Mental Health" offers insight into the processes
at work when two people talk with the help of an interpreter and will be of
value to linguists specialising in intercultural communication, health care
professionals, interpreters and anyone working in multilingual situations
who already uses or is planning to use an interpreter.
