Working realities for journalists in Europe have changed drastically. Across Europe the increasingly polarized political environment leads to more hostility against journalists. How can we face this challenge and stay sane and healthy while doing our jobs as journalists? At this workshop the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma will offer insights into the trauma awareness that journalists need for their own mental well-being and to support their colleagues. Cait McMahon, Director Dart Center Asia Pacific and one of the world’s leading psychologists in the field of journalism and trauma, will run the workshop in association with network members of the Dart Centre Europe.

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.
