When at their best, many journalists and editors experience the worst: a sea of disturbing, traumatic content related to terrorism, natural disasters, conflict, shootings and more. Every newsroom can and must develop and implement a vicarious trauma response plan.

Please note: this session has limited capacity and requires an RSVP to attend. RSVPs closed 48 hours in advance. A full-conference ONA18 badge is required for entry.

This session is designed for:

  • Newsrooms looking to develop a vicarious trauma response plan
  • Reporters worried about their contact with traumatic content
  • Those wanting to look out for peers when they cover traumatic events
  • Speakers
