Workshop for Haiti media responders


Daylong Workshop for Journos Who Covered Haiti, April 6; RSVP Needed but No Charge

A session for journalists who covered the earthquake and aftermath in Haiti will be conducted from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday, April 6, in the Bloomberg Classroom. There is no charge.

The Eric Friedheim National Journalism Library at the National Press Club is partnering with the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma to present a workshop for journalists who experienced the extraordinary challenges of covering the extremes of destruction and human suffering in Haiti.

This closed-door, journalist-to-journalist discussion will offer a chance to reflect on covering Haiti, on issues which emerged in the field or at home, and lessons learned for covering future disasters.

The conference will also include briefings and conversation on: trauma awareness for journalists; practical and ethical newsroom issues; and techniques and practical resources for resilience and peer trauma support.

The conference will draw on the experiences of journalists in the aftermath of 9/11, Hurricane Katrina and the 2004 tsunami. It is built on Dart Center programs developed by leading clinicians in collaboration with journalists and news managers. The program will be led by Bruce Shapiro, executive director of the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. Space is limited, and reservations are required. RSVP at (202) 662-7523 or jschoo@press.org

Teru, if you somehow manage to get your hands on some kind of a “report” about the workshop afterwards, it would be interesting to read.

Since I did Haiti, Katrina, and 9.11— I think I should qualify for the tri-fecta. Seriously, I too am interested in what was said at the meeting. All in all, having been a survivor in Katrina as well as a shooter, the problems of first responders pale compared to those of the folks who we photograph. Shooters get to go back to the comfort of a safe and normal place, even if briefly. For victims, there no such sanctuary.

Laura’s right so let’s scrap the UN and Governments if Greece and Haiti goes down in so-called modern times… then we know we ain’t insured by intelligence, the economy or finance and plagued by misery or favouritism tainted by racism
