"Thanks again for going the extra mile for me. You and the team have certainly given me very pleasant personal and individual care" - Judy, Trainee Interpreter

You get booked to interpret within an Occupational Therapy (OT) session. What is expected of you? What are the challenges? What is OT?

OT sessions can be fun, practical and interesting sessions to be a part of. However, as a member of the Multi-Disciplinary Team, an interpreter needs to understand the rationale behind the profession and what the therapist will expect from you.

This webinar will take you through what Occupational Therapy actually is, the different sessions you may be asked to interpret, the possible expected aims of the session and the challenges as an interpreter you may experience.

I will also discuss how to prepare for an OT session and how to overcome its challenges.

Learning Outcomes

At the end of this session participants will:

  • Gain an understanding of what Occupational Therapy as a profession is all about
  • Have a good understanding of what to expect from an Occupational Therapy session and what will be expected of you
  • Understand how to overcome and deal with some challenges
  • Gain more confidence in working with Occupational Therapists within adult mental health

NB – This webinar does not qualify you to work in mental health settings alone but will be an invaluable part of your professional development.
