Best practices in trauma reporting

The Dart Center for Journalism & Trauma has put together this guide for journalists and students new to trauma reporting. While the examples used in the guide are mainly U.S.-based, Dart is a global resource that supports programs around the world and acknowledges trauma “does not recognize geographical boundaries.” More than a decade of work went into the creation of Best Practices in Trauma Reporting, the goal of which is to “to help journalists produce professional, insightful, informative, ethical and engaging stories about difficult subject matter by using other journalists’ successful ideas, insights and experiences as an inspirational guide.” The complete document can be read at the link below.
