Rory Peck Trust offers trauma and resilience workshops

Rory Peck Trust (RPT), in partnership with Meta, is inviting applications for its trauma and resilience workshops for freelance journalists. 

The workshops are a part of the RPT Resilience Programme and will be delivered by Dart Centre Europe.

The Resilience Programme provides specialist trauma-informed training and access to psychological treatment, enabling freelance journalists to develop the skills they need to build resilience when exposed to conflict or covering traumatic events.

Freelance journalists worldwide can apply for free online workshops on trauma and building resilience.

Each workshop offers two webinars, both two hours in length, led by specialised journalist trainers.

The workshops will be held in English, Arabic, French, Russian, and Spanish.
