JOURNALISTS COVERING IMMIGRATION & REFUGEE ISSUES (free workshop) / by Bear Guerra

Via Dart Center:

“This workshop, to be held September 19-22, 2019 at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, is designed for local, regional and international reporters across diverse beats touching refugees, migration and children: education, public health, politics, policy, as well as particular refugee and borders crises.

The four-day workshop will bring journalists together with internationally-recognized scientists, policy experts, and practitioners from the field of early childhood development to discuss the effects of trauma on developing brains, the special early-childhood issues raised by displacement and family separation, and evidence-based interventions that support nurturing care amid adversity. The workshop will also offer journalist-to-journalist discussions of craft and ethics, source development, and collaboration among participants, as well as best practices for telling compelling stories about this profoundly vulnerable population.

The workshop will be conducted in English.”

DEADLINE: June 7.
