Combater o stress traumático

Posted in Trauma on Fevereiro 25, 2008 by Paulo Nuno Vicente

Recupero este texto de 14 de Setembro de 2001. Por estes dias, o 9/11 era motivo para reflexão. A razão é simples, mas sistematicamente esquecida:

Reporters, photojournalists, engineers, soundmen, and field producers often work elbow to elbow with emergency workers. Journalists’ symptoms of traumatic stress are remarkably similar to those of police officers and firefighters who work in the immediate aftermath of tragedy, yet journalists typically receive little support after they file their stories. While public-safety workers are offered debriefings and counseling after a trauma, journalists are merely assigned another story.
