Beyond the measures provided by newsrooms and other organisations, journalists should develop a self-care plan to minimize the risk of long-term trauma derived from being exposed to intense online harassment. This video looks at key elements that can form part of such a plan.

  • Develop a self-care plan
    • Remain in contact with things that are good for oneself
    • Strategies to tune down stress: Diaphragmatic breathing
    • Mindfulness
    • Contact with the natural world
    • Find space to regain your strength
    • Resilience is a muscle
    • Give your best hours to the worst material
    • Remind yourself why you are a journalist
