Trauma Journalism

From spring 2012 issue of Oxford Bibliographies (Oxford University Press), the article “Journalism and Trauma” by Meg Spratt and Sue Lockett John (Univ. of Washington): “To date, the most comprehensive works covering various aspects of journalism and trauma are the groundbreaking textbook Covering Violence: A Guide to Ethical Reporting about Victims and Trauma (Simpson and Coté 2006), the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma website, a special 2009 edition of Nieman Reports (Ludtke 2009) devoted to trauma coverage, and Trauma Journalism: On Deadline in Harm’s Way (Massé 2011). Massé continues this work with a fresh overview of the field and new case studies from working journalists. … Builds on the existing literature to provide an updated overview of the field of journalism and trauma, including practical, ethical, and legal information for journalists and students. Personal stories about journalists who have covered tragedy help illustrate primary points and issues in each chapter.”
