Post-trauma survey

THE FREELANCE draws members' attention to a survey of journalists who have reported from a war-zone or disaster. The researcher says:

I'm looking at something called Post Traumatic Growth (PTG), an increased sense of resilience and growth, which is said to happen to some of those who undergo or witness trauma.

The aim of the study is to understand which factors exist which may lead to PTG and subsequently learn how best to protect those working in news, as they continue to do a challenging job.
