The Dart Center’s research unit, based at the University of Tulsa Department of Psychology, has undertaken pioneering peer-reviewed studies on newsrooms and traumatic stress, and encourages scientific and scholarly inquiry into the impact of news coverage of traumatic events.
Led by Dart Research Director Elana Newman, the University of Tulsa team manages the definitive bibliographic database of scholarly articles on the intersection of journalism and trauma.
We have also developed an anonymous online survey to assess the various forms of occupational risk and stress encountered by working journalists. Please follow this link to both complete and share the survey.
