Authors: Jukes, S.
Publisher: House of Lords select committee on Communications and Digital
The submission argues that journalists and journalism students would benefit from training to develop their emotional literacy to promote more responsible and ethical reporting of crises such as the coronavirus pandemic and to help rebuild trust in journalism. It specifically addresses the question of how a better understanding of trauma and the impact of emotionally charged content can help journalism adapt to today’s digital environment.
