    New Dart Fellowship Offers Training for Journalism Educators

    No matter what the beat or medium, young journalists are almost certain to encounter human tragedy in the course of their work. But few student journalists are trained to recognize trauma and stress reactions in survivors, to make informed ethical choices about trauma news, or to deal with their own emotional reactions while on the job. With this in mind, the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma has established a new Academic Fellowship Program.  More »

Having already been involved with programmes for media professionals from countries such Indonesia, Singapore, Philippines, Cambodia, Japan, New Zealand and East Timor to name a few, Dart Centre Australasia in fact takes in the much broader area of the Asia Pacific.

    Our New Website

    Welcome to the new online home of the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma!

    Over the last 18 months, we've redesigned, rebuilt, and reconceived DartCenter.org as a state-of-the-art resource center, think tank and platform for coverage of violence, conflict and tragedy the world over.

    This makeover of DartCenter.org comes with journalism itself in upheaval. Journalists who cover street crime and courts, family violence, war, disasters or human rights now are squeezed between the 24 hour news cycle and an industry in economic crisis ... More »
