OPC and IWMF Offer Psychological Safety Training for Women and Nonbinary Journalists
Freelance writers, editors and visual producers are invited to an interactive, virtual session on fostering psychological safety and resilience in the face of trauma in the course of practicing journalism. The program is aimed at women, nonbinary journalists and allies. The training is scheduled at an hour we hope will be convenient for journalists in Asia and the Middle East. The Overseas Press Club and the International Women’s Media Foundation are co-sponsoring the event. It is supported by the Committee to Protect Journalists, Rory Peck Trust, and ACOS, all organizations committed to providing programs and services to bolster the mental health and security of working journalists. Ana Zellhuber, psychoanalyst and Emergency Psychology specialist based in Mexico City, will deliver the training. She will include a slide presentation, and she will offer a guided and interactive exercise, with ample time for Q&A and discussion. In 2005, Zellhuber founded Vinland Solutions, to provide psychological support to women journalists, human rights defenders and women in politics who have been a target of persecution.
Registrants will receive a link to join the Zoom call via email about an hour before the program on July 20.
