Exploring Horizontal Violence Amongst BSL/English Interpreters
Presenters: Brett Best and Rachel Wilkins
This webinar explores the concept of horizontal violence—bullying behaviours amongst colleagues that are made with negative intentions and may cause the recipient anxiety or stress. We will look at results from a recent survey of BSL/English interpreters to gain insight into this phenomenon in our own profession and consider whether or not such behaviours might happen differently in face-to-face versus online situations. Causes of horizontal violence, consequences and suggestions for mitigating its occurrence in the signed language interpreting profession will be also discussed.
