Journalists and human right’s activists on daily basis deal with difficult situations affecting themselves directly or the people they’re helping, they work under stressful conditions, always chasing a deadline and oftentimes while trying to make the world better they mend up encountering the darker side of it. All those things make them prone to experiencing compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma. Learn more about what these are, how they manifest themselves (whether it comes to you or members of your team) and why paying attention to symptoms is crucial not you for you but also people you work with from a great conversation with Andy Carvin in our first episode of the third season of MEGAPHONE podcast series.
