At the School of Journalism at Oslo University College, Norway, a workshop on reporting in the midst of crisis.
School shootings, child abduction, torture and murder are all examples of personal tragedies that make for important and compelling public news. But how does one approach the private grief of a victim without unnecessarily adding to the distress? And, when returning to the story, months or even years later, how does one insightfully and safely re-open the past?
This workshop, organised by Dart Centre Europe, the School of Journalism at Oslo University College and the Norwegian Union of Journalists, will look at the challenges and continuing impact of reporting in the midst of crisis. Participants will include journalists who reported on the school shootings in Finland and Germany, experts in the psychology of disaster situations and journalists who have investigated the aftermath of historical trauma.
This workshop immediately precedes ECOTS, the biannual conference of the European Traumatic Stress Society.
