When reporting on war and displacement, the stories of children are often overlooked despite the fact that children represent one quarter of the world's population. While challenging to undertake, stories told through the eyes of children can awaken readers, listeners, and viewers to the urgency, gravity and devastating impacts of violence and conflict.
But how do journalists report ethically and effectively on children and other people who have faced traumatic events and involve them in their reporting without causing further harm? This 60-minute workshop will help deepen people's understanding of what trauma is and how to do interviewing that is trauma-informed and does not retraumatise children and other survivors, creating check-lists of what to consider before, during and after an interview.
