Working with the team of psychaitrists, psychologists, nurses, social workers, Interpreted and translated documents for Farsi-speaking patients
Pros: a toally new environment for me to work in
Cons: not having had enough "safety" backgorund and training in dealing with mentally challenged patients
Translated all medical, social, family, and legal documents for the entire treatment team at the hospital and courts.Interpreting was also used when the patients were present in sessions.
- Very difficult at times because of the "institutionalized" situation of the hospital.
- Team worked very effectively together
