Trauma Journalism

Former Virginia Tech Collegiate Times editor Amie Steele in a 2009 dartcenter.org article: “I realized there was a story behind the victims. And while we had our notebooks and recorders out during those weeks writing about people’s emotions, we weren’t dealing with our own. Journalists are too often covering heartbreaking, emotional stories. At the end of the day, I think it is important for journalists to come to terms with the grave things they may see while covering a story— not only for their sanity but for their reporting. While it is important for you to tell that person’s story, your health is important too.”
