Journalism can be a risky business – not just in conflict zones but in many domestic settings as well. The risks have grown steadily across the years, and no one is more vulnerable than the freelancer, working without the technical, physical and emotional support of a single employer, usually at a financial disadvantage too.
CMG Freelance recently offered this free webinar led by The Canadian Journalism Forum on Violence and Trauma’s co-founder and president, Cliff Lonsdale. Cliff approaches the topic with a long and varied background in foreign and domestic reporting, both staff and freelance, as well as TV and radio production, news management and teaching journalism at the graduate level.
We’re posting it here so that all freelancers can benefit from Cliff’s presentation.
TRIGGER WARNING: This webinar contains information and descriptions about traumatic situations (suicide, natural disasters, violence, tragic accidents, etc.) that may be triggering to survivors.
