Episode Summary

The Emotional Impact of Interpreting
Nikki and Yvonne are in the studio meeting with Daryl Jackson, a deaf interpreter who had to interpret for a close friend with serious illness. With little to no support available, is the emotional trauma of interpreting difficult situations causing interpreters to quit the profession and what can be done about it? Ali Hetherington, an experienced interpreter, believes the answer is professional supervision. We meet deaf actress Charly Arrowsmith in rehearsals for two new plays with the Royal Shakespeare Company. We travel up to Castleford Academy to see the work of a resource base staffed almost entirely by teachers, CSWs and instructors with BSL Level 3 or higher, led by deaf teacher of the deaf Kate Reed. We are joined in the studio by BBC Young Reporter of the Year finalist Jovita, who shares her experiences and her hopes for the future of deaf education.moreless
