Description

Journalists are trained to wrest information from the powerful: But what about those rendered powerless because they are caught up in tragic events? The Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma is a global alliance of psychiatrists, journalists and educators that gives those who bear witness to human tragedy the support they need to stay sane. This session explores the challenges of being ethical storytellers in an increasingly violent and dangerous world.
