Professional interpreters working in healthcare, in court, in jail, with refugees, with child protective services, with victims of abuse, or in war zones most likely experienced high levels of stress, suffered vicarious trauma, or felt vulnerable during the course of their everyday work. Vicarious trauma has been identified as something that affects the performance and wellbeing of certain professionals, such as interpreters, by their experiencing or internalizing someone else’s trauma. Research has confirmed they are vulnerable to vicarious trauma, burnouts, compassion fatigue, or secondary stress as a result of repeated exposure to various traumatic information and experiences.
