Traditionally clinical work and psychotherapy is conducted between two people and the idea of incorporating a third person into the therapeutic relationship can be unsettling. We have listened to therapists and interpreters who have described situations when they have had no training in working together. They have expressed concerns and anxieties about the thought of working together or experiences they have already had. These experiences form the basis of 4 training scenarios, followed by learning points. The entire film lasts seven and a half minutes.
