“Reporting on Deaths by Suicide” with The Poynter Institute’s Al Tompkins and Kelly McBride

Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States, in fact far more people die by suicide than homicide, yet it gets a fraction of our media coverage. This workshop will help you find ways to cover this epidemic of preventable deaths by boosting your awareness, knowledge and skills in covering this vital topic.

We will:

* Expose some myths about suicide.
*Document some of the most vulnerable populations.
*Gun violence is a major part of any discussion about suicide.
*This workshop is focused on reporting about deaths by suicide, not ignoring it.

This workshop is led by The Poynter Institute’s Al Tompkins and Kelly McBride who have taught thousands of journalists worldwide how to ethically cover difficult issues. Tompkins is Senior Faculty at the Poynter Institute. Kelly McBride is the Institute’s Senior Vice President and leads Poynter’s ethics program. Together they combine more than 65 years of journalism and teaching in newsrooms including the biggest networks and newspapers to the smallest markets in all 50 states, Canada, South Africa, Egypt, Japan, Ecuador, Iceland, Czech Republic and beyond.
