Covering violence and trauma can be a psychologically hazardous enterprise. Journalists working on traumatic assignments often fear that, sooner or later, the work will leave its scars. But few have access to up-to-date information on precisely where those dangers lie and what can be done about them. How can good habits and methods of resilience be developed in order to minimise the risks and, if things do go wrong, to deal with PTSD, burn-out and other possible consequences? How does the exposure to violence, even via the web, affect journalists working on the ground and in the newsroom? The panel will present personal experience, research and solutions of self care techniques in a consideration of the most effective ways of avoiding the negative consequences resulting from a prolonged exposure to risk.
