In SILENT HARM, we look at deaf survivors of DSGBV recount their stories and experiences of interactions in different scenarios. These are based on true stories. The film has been produced by a team of deaf and hearing researchers at Heriot-Watt University and produced by the JUSTISIGNS 2 team in Scotland and Ireland.
A GENDER-BASED VIOLENCE TOOLKIT is drawn from work written and created by the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre and designed by Interesource Group (Ireland) Limited. The aim of these resources is to provide easy-to-access information for service providers and interpreters around issues such as the trauma and the impact of sexual violence, best practice in interpreter mediated work, and importantly, self-care. Topics include: “Guidelines for service providers working with interpreters”, “Simple ways to resource yourself when impacted during a session”, “Impacts of rape and sexual assault”, and “Principles and ethics of interpreting when working with victims of sexual violence”.
This toolkit maybe used and distributed in this unedited form and no permission is required for its dissemination. Its use should be accordingly referenced.
