Posted on July 16, 2015

Journalism educators can register for this free conference in Columbia, Missouri.

The Reynolds Journalism Institute at the Missouri School of Journalism will host "Trauma Journalism: Training for educators" Oct. 15 to 17. 

Educators will learn how to prepare students for the impact of trauma on individuals — including themselves — and communities, how to build resilience through reporting, and provide hands-on help in creating units or standalone courses on trauma.

Topics include dynamics of trauma and resilience, the elements of self care and how to navigate classroom discussions of some of the most sensitive topics journalists encounter in their work.

The registration deadline is Oct. 9. A travel scholarship is available to cover one night at a hotel. The deadline for the scholarship is Sept. 1.
