Trauma Journalism

Excerpts from review of "Trauma Journalism: On Deadline in Harm's Way" in Winter 2012 issue of American Journalism: "This book is rich in primary anecdotes from journalists who paint a realistic picture of the difficulties and rewards of their work.

His chapter on 'Media Training and Intervention,' for example, includes guidelines for interviewing victims of tragedy, including children; risk assessment; contingency planning; and self-care.
