On behalf of the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma and the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism, I invite you to participate in a special workshop on covering intimate partner violence, to be held on October 21 & 22 in New York City.

Reporting on intimate partner violence challenges news professionals, whether cops and courts reporters, feature writers, investigative reporters or journalists covering neighborhoods, education or health. To help journalists and news organizations strengthen their coverage of this crucial public health issue, the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma based at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism is presenting a two-day workshop: “Out of the Shadows: Reporting on Intimate Partner Violence.”
The workshop will feature a wide range of national and local public health and policy experts, award-winning journalists, educators and prevention advocates. It will include background briefings as well as specialized reporting skills training to enhance journalists’ capacity to report on relationship violence knowledgeably, ethically and effectively. It will examine these issues across  diverse communities and special populations including teenagers, immigrants and refugees; and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered individuals.
The workshop is open to working reporters, editors, photographers, producers or bloggers for print, broadcast or online media. Staff, contract and freelance journalists are eligible. 25 individuals will be selected for the workshop. A limited number of travel stipends will be made available.
Speakers include: Donna Ferrato, Documentary Photographer; Ann Jones, Ph.D. Writer and Author, “Women Who Kill”; Jan Hoffman, Staff Writer, New York Times; Sacha Pfeiffer, Reporter, WBUR; Emily Rothman, Sc.D., Associate Professor, Boston University School of Public Health; Esta Soler, Founder, Executive Director, Futures Without Violence; Linda Mills, Ph.D. Professor of Social Work, Public Policy, and Law, New York University; Executive Director, Center on Violence and Recovery; Kristin Lombardi, 2011 Nieman Fellow, Center for Public Integrity.

The application deadline is September 26, 2011 at 5 p.m. EST. More information can be found at http://bit.ly/dartcenterIPV

Best,
Bruce Shapiro
