Abstract

The article touches upon the need for psychological preparedness of journalists working in emergencies supported by the results of an experiment. During the experiment, we used well-known methods. Our findings suggest that it is necessary to incorporate the programme “Psychological Preparedness of Journalists Covering Emergencies” into the curriculum of those educational institutions where Journalism is taught. It will significantly reduce the risks and the negative impact of emergencies first of all on journalists and then on the audience through the information provided by journalists.
