This is to inform you that two members from the Dart Centre for Journalism and Trauma will be travelling to Samoa next week to talk with local journalists regarding their coverage of the tsunami devastation. The mission is to debrief media workers who have been personally affected by the devastation. The mission is in partnership with the International Federation of Journalists based on an initiative by JAWS. The visiting specialists are Cait McMahon the Managing Director of Dart Centre Australasia, and veteran War Correspondent Jon Stephenson.
