How does media play into trauma?

An interview with Dana Rose Garfin, assistant adjunct professor in the Sue & Bill Gross School of Nursing at the University of California, Irvine on media exposure and trauma. … “It is critical to stay informed during traumatic events, especially ongoing events like the COVID-19 pandemic, an approaching hurricane, and now the George Floyd protests and riots. … That withstanding, I encourage people to pick one or two media sources to stay informed and try to limit repeated exposure, particularly to disturbing images.”
