Journalists have an obligation not to re-traumatize victims they are interviewing, while at the same time taking care of their own psychological well-being when covering traumatic stories.

This session brings together three award-winning journalists who have reported traumatic stories in extremely difficult places, including Syria, Mexico, Somalia, and Libya. They will look at issues raised when reporters immerse themselves in traumatic stories and discuss crucial coping strategies.
