People We've Worked With

Now is the time for Trauma Reporting training. I am delighted to offer an established, effective and engaging way for people to become Trauma Aware Professionals/Journalism and Media. Having the certificate will give journalists added confidence to cover people’s difficult emotional stories, looking after the needs of their contributors, their output and themselves.

The Book

The overwhelming success of her training led Jo to write: Trauma Reporting: A Journalist’s Guide to Covering Sensitive Stories (Routledge).
