Trauma Journalism

Former TV reporter-turned academic, Gretchen Dworznik studied coping mechanisms of broadcast journalists. The Ashland University (Ohio) assistant professor employed psychological methods to examine the emotional effects of repeated exposure to fatal auto accidents, murders, kidnappings, and other violent crimes. Instead of a survey, Dworznik used journalists' personal narratives about their experiences to reflect how they adapted to their stressful work and found constructive meaning in their efforts.
