The Edit discusses journalism and trauma

On Monday 5 September 2016 The Edit held a special panel on Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Our guests were:

Veteran Foreign Correspondent
Peter Cave filed from Tiananmen Square as students were massacred, witnessed the fall of Indonesia’s President Suharto and reported on the Egyptian revolution, the Libyan civil war and the uprising in Syria. He is arguably Australia’s best known and most prolific foreign correspondent.

Managing Director, Dart Center Asia Pacific
Dr Cait McMahon is a registered psychologist and Australia’s foremost specialist in journalism and trauma.

Heidi Edwards sheltered as gunmen attacked the Westgate Shopping Mall in Kenya and massacred 76 people. She is talking for the first time about what it was like dealing with journalists in the aftermath
