                             **IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ASL INTERPRETER CEUs**  

Webinar focus:  

  • Unique considerations when interpreter services are needed for forensic psychiatry/psychology interviews 
  • General approaches to individuals with psychiatric symptoms
  • Diagnosis of psychiatric conditions
  • Treatments and management of psychiatric conditions

The purpose of this webinar is to detail the unique considerations present when using an interpreter in a forensic interview, including whether it is appropriate to take the case, the practical aspects of working with an interpreter, and whether the use of standardized instruments is indicated. While working with the interpreter, a forensic psychiatrist can enhance the interview by discussing the purpose of the interview with the interpreter before it takes place, encouraging accurate translation of information, reviewing incorrect or unusual responses to questions, and considering the evaluee's cultural beliefs. Standardized instruments, which can be very helpful in an English language interview, may be less useful when an interpreter is used.

Presenter: Ryan Colt Wagoner, M.D.

Chief of Forensic Psychiatry, Assistant Professor of Psychiatry – University of South Florida, Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurosciences
