Discussing the Current Perception of Horizontal Violence Within the Sign Language Interpreting Profession: Are There Misconceptions?
Sign language interpreters are becoming more accustomed to acts of horizontal violence (HV). Research shows the magnitude of the problem in other fields, such as nursing, midwifery, and educational settings. However, little research was available with respect to sign language interpreters. This study investigated sign language interpreters' understanding of HV and emotional intelligence (EI) while determining the differences between feedback, critiquing, and criticism through participants' perspectives. The participants were from varied backgrounds and levels of knowledge, skills, and abilities. In addition, the research assessed how interpreters perceived the terminology presented. The research also investigated participants' experiences with HV as a student or practicing professionals and their thoughts on any association between HV and EI.
