This book is a practical and helpful guide for therapists that outlines best practice in working with interpreters. It provides an accessible tool for therapists working in a range of settings from small unfunded therapy teams in the voluntary sector to primary care work.

Working with Interpreters in Psychological Therapy has been written collaboratively by a therapist and an interpreter working in the refugee sector. The writers reflect upon how therapists can manage some of the complex dynamics that can occur in the triadic relationship and explore how the presence of an interpreter can bring additional psychological benefits to clients.

This book is essential reading for therapists working in cross-cultural settings, as well as the organizations in which they work.
