Cultural competencies are essential when interpreting between people of varying cultures. It is important to recognize how cultural differences impact the interpreting needs. This webshop was designed with Najma Johnson. It provides an overview of structures of oppression and privilege using the theory of kyriarchy. It also discusses intersectionality in the Deaf, DeafBlind, and hard of hearing communities.

This webshop:

  • Defines structures of oppression and privilege.
  • Uses case studies to illustrate how a person’s lived experience can impact how they interact with mental health systems.
  • Provides tools to help interpreters develop cultural competencies.
