Trauma Journalism

Wall Street Journal reporter Amy Dockser Marcus, who spent seven years as a correspondent covering the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, says medical stories can be as stressful, tragic and brutal as the longest war. In 2004, she embarked on a yearlong project, immersed in the lives of cancer patients and their families. Her nine-part series won the Pulitzer Prize. “I think reporting about fatal illnesses is often overlooked in the typical definitions of trauma,” she says, noting how as a journalist “you embark on profound relationships with people that can last years.”
