Trauma Journalism

At North Carolina State University in Raleigh, N.C., Bradley Wilson, coordinator for student media, has been staging campus emergency drills, such as simulated shootings or explosions, since the mid-1990s to help student journalists interact with traumatized people. Wilson, who has worked in emergency medical services for 20 years and is a trained medic, was editor of the 2010 Journalism Education Association’s special edition "Covering the Unimaginable," a crisis-planning guide for educators confronted by disaster, violence and emergencies, notably student deaths and suicide.
