Newsroom Training

Newsroom Training​​

Our three-part training programme for journalists and those working in newsrooms - which was developed in consultation with British journalists, mental health professionals and people with lived experience - is aimed at helping news professionals become more trauma-informed, enabling them to tell better and more accurate stories involving mental health themes and more broadly, and to better understand how dysregulation of the nervous system can impact their work.

Understanding mental health and

trauma is part of the craft of journalism

 

Safely Held Spaces three-module programme offers those working in the media a chance to better understand mental health language; to develop skills to write and interview from a more trauma-informed perspective; and to learn how dysregulation of the body’s nervous system can impact everything from editorial decisions to a journalist’s ability to cultivate a sense of trust and safety with those who are interviewed for news stories. 

 

Great storytelling is at the heart of all journalism and our training programme is designed to help news professionals to think outside of the box, equipping them with the skills to delve deeper into the stories of those they write about.  The training pays particular attention to the ‘missing voices’ in stories and offers guidance on how to strive for greater inclusivity of under-represented perspectives.

 

The training also looks at the emerging area of trauma, and explores how becoming trauma-informed can help journalists bring out the hidden human stories behind the headlines. If you are interested in our training for news professionals and journalists, click here to contact us.

Podcast Training

Many people who have experienced mental and emotional distress, and the family, friends and professionals supporting them, have important stories to tell which are better suited to longer form interviews. 

 

Safely Held Spaces offers a comprehensive podcast training programme to those who want to launch a podcast to help to shine a light on important issues and areas of discussion in the mental health field.  In particular our podcast training aims to amplify the voices of those whose stories are under-represented or missing from more mainstream mental health discourse.

Broadcast Media Training 

 

We are providing training to mental health professionals, people who have experienced mental and emotional distress and to the family and friends who support them to empower them to speak out in the media about how we can reimagine our understanding of, and responses to mental and emotional distress. 

 

We're doing this so that a broader range of voices can be heard on television, radio, online and in podcasts.  If you are interested in our broadcast media training, click here to contact us.
