Module dates: February 4th – March 10th, 2019
If you missed it the first time when we offered our module in 2018, here is the second opportunity to take advantage of the CATIE Center’s module, Intro to Mental Health But I Don’t Do Mental Health!
Have you ever thought to yourself, “But I don’t do mental health!”?
Although you may not think of yourself as a mental health interpreter, mental health issues arise in all aspects of people’s lives. Regardless of the settings where you currently work, this training will open your eyes to the ways mental health interpreting may show up in your current work and present opportunities for more training.
This module will cover:
- An overview of the mental health care system
- Mental health settings and who is on the care team
- Therapeutic approaches and services
- Diagnostic tools for mental health
- Barriers people who are Deaf, hard of hearing and Deafblind face in getting services
- Steps and resources for further training
This module was designed with Steve Hamerdinger, Arlyn Anderson, Karen Sheldon, and Vyron Kinson.
This module will require about 20 hours of work. There are no set meeting times, but topics are opened weekly to give participants richer discussion and learning opportunities. All work must be completed by 11:59pm on March 10. No extensions will be offered. See Course Outline below for an overview of the course.
