A multimodal analysis of turn-taking in interpreter-mediated psychotherapy

Author

Abstract
Although interpreting in mental health care has received some scholarly attention over the past two decades, the multimodal organization of such encounters has not been investigated in detail so far. This paper highlights two types of turn-taking problems that can occur in interpreter-mediated psychotherapy from a multimodal perspective. Based on a dataset of video-recorded psychotherapeutic sessions with refugees, the study aims to examine the role of nonverbal resources (especially gaze) in the negotiation of turn-transitions between the interpreter and the primary speaker in two interactional contexts: turn-transfer during extended turns and in the management of overlapping talk. The data were analyzed qualitatively by drawing on the insights from Conversation Analysis (CA). The analysis shows how interpreters use gaze direction to signal their intent to take the floor and to manage rights to the conversational floor (turn-yielding and turn-holding). The paper also demonstrates how problems in the coordination of turn-taking can result in loss of information. In sum, the present analysis points to the role of gaze in the management of speaking rights and emphasizes the multimodal nature of turn management in psychotherapeutic talk with an onsite interpreter.
