Working with Interpreters: An Experience in Soviet Resettlement

By Gloria Zicht

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1993

The United States has welcomed thousands of Soviet refugees over the past few years. The lack of bilingual professionally trained social workers has necessitated the use of lay interpreters or bilingual paraprofessionals. Issues of professional role, impartiality, confidentiality, and countertransference arise in this context and must be addressed by social service agencies. A model team approach that places interpreters on a team with social workers in the provision of social services is presented.
