Event description

Description

The ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions, Europe 1100-1800 presents its 2017 Change Collaboratory opening lecture:

JOURNALISTS IMPACTED BY TRAUMA - THAT’S NEWS. WHY SHOULD WE CARE?

Cait McMahon OAM

Dr McMahon OAM will present the current psychological research on journalists exposed to traumatic events, and the emotional repercussions of such work. This research will be accompanied by examples of how media
professionals have managed their emotions at the time of potentially traumatic exposure and afterwards. McMahon will discuss self-care strategies that she teaches journalists to maintain resilience in such circumstances. The presentation will also include examples of journalists’ self-censorship because of fear elicited through trauma reporting; the concept of moral injury as it relates to news gathering, and the importance of ethical reporting on people affected by trauma.
