JOURNALISM & PTSD
CJR has an interesting piece on journalism-acquired PTSD and the reasons behind it:
"Earlier studies of reporters in war zones have suggested already that journalists are at higher risk for stress symptoms than other conflict-adjacent workers such as safety officers or medical technicians. Unlike other first responders, Idas points out, journalists 'are not there to help anyone,' a circumstance that 'runs against ethical and moral norms as a human being.' It’s a similar concept to the growing study of 'moral injury' in the military, where soldiers seem to experience stress symptoms when ordered to partake in actions that run contrary to their own personal moral code."
