Uncovering the Story: PTSD Among Journalists

Recording: Uncovering the Story: PTSD Among Journalists, Mar 14, 2018

Covering “routine” violent, traumatic or disturbing stories over the course of a journalism career can trigger Post Traumatic Stress symptoms. Journalists don’t have to be embedded in a war-torn country to feel PTSD’s devastating effects. It creeps up and can turn lives upside down. An EMMY-winning former journalist, a trauma expert from Baylor Scott and White Healthcare System and the research director at the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma talk traumatic exposure, signs and solutions.
