Detta webinarium är en del i en webinarie-serie som European Society for Traumatic Stress Studies (ESTSS) anordnar under januari och februari 2022.

Several recent incidents of journalist killings in Europe have shook up the public and made aware that there is an increased aggression against journalists and the media community in general.

We aim to put together a 4-person panel of journalists, researchers and mental health experts. In this panel webinar we want to learn about (1) journalism as a high risk profession for physical safety (threat to life) and traumatic exposure, (2) personal, occupational and societal factors that shape the outcomes of the exposure, and (3) what our mental health community can do to contribute to justice for journalists.

The aim of the webinar is to create awareness about the increased unsafety for journalists, its effects on personal health and on the sense of safety in greater society, and ways to support and advocate for journalists.
