Child Protective Services Webinar
· Teach interpreters the vocabulary of Children’s Protection Services as well as the overall system. Since the system has multiple layers, it is important that the overall understanding of each category is improved by taking this course.
· Help interpreters learn each role that is played by the multiple workers in the CPS system. Understanding what each worker does will allow the interpreter to further improve their vocabulary in interactions with parents as well as children.
· Inform interpreters of the requirements that may vary from state to state that allow interpreters to work in this field. It is important to know what each state does with their system in order to better understand what is needed of the interpreter.
· Allow interpreters to inquire from an individual who has prior experiences in the field of work. Learning from a fellow interpreter will help participants understand the workload and how to take care of themselves as well through this course.
