Many times, journalists are derided for talking to people who have experienced trauma -- or, perhaps, for the way they talk to those people. But it's well-established that many people want to tell their stories, and that it's important -- to communities, for example -- that those stories be told. So the challenge for journalists becomes: How do we do this well, without re-victimizing trauma victims?
Anyone with any thoughts or insights on best practices for journalists covering trauma, and/or how covering trauma can affect journalists, I'd love to take those thoughts with me to this fellowship.
