This online learning session will take place from 11:00 to 12:00 CET via Zoom.
Do your job, do it well, do no harm. Impactful journalism can often mean that so many journalists could find themselves working closely with victims, survivors and vulnerable sources.
In this session, faculty member Mark Egan will be joined by Jo Healey to discuss how best to cover people’s sensitive stories. She says: “These are the stories where we aren’t there to hold people to account but to hear their accounts, and to hear them in the best way for them, for us and for our output. We need to know how to become trauma-informed journalists.”
Jo is a senior journalist and author of Trauma Reporting, A Journalist’s Guide to Covering Sensitive Stories. She developed the BBC’s in-house Trauma Reporting training and is an Associate Trainer with The Dart Centre for Journalism and Trauma. She trains journalists around the world.
Editorial: Getting the best out of your vulnerable interviewees, sensitive interview techniques, establishing professional relationships
Innovation: Becoming trauma-informed journalists to benefit you, your interviewees, your output and your audience
Storytelling: Delivering impactful journalism when reporting emotional stories, including Covid
