Good practice issues in working with interpreters in mental health

Article English OPEN
Tribe, Rachel ; Morrissey, Jean (2004)

This article makes suggestions for good practice in working with interpreters either in situations of ongoing-armed conflict or with asylum seekers refugees and internally displaced people who have fled from areas of armed conflict.
