Emotional Self-Care Workshops

Compassion Fatigue & Personal Self-Care


Global Journalist Security is a forward-looking, technology-oriented Hostile Environments training and consulting firm, and the only news and nonprofit training provider to successfully compete in both the private and donor-driven sectors. We draw from cutting edge military, law enforcement and civilian protocols to adjust to constantly evolving environments. We cover traditional threats like combat hazards and emergency first-aid, along with relatively newer concerns like sexual assault, organized crime and civil unrest. We uniquely integrate emotional trauma awareness and self-care into our training. We further integrate digital safety and technology into many of our courses. Our trainers include former U.K. and U.S. elite military personnel, U.S. counter-terrorism and law enforcement personnel, emergency medical technicians, martial artists, rape crisis counselors, journalists, human rights defenders, and digital security experts.
