Katherine Reed, an associate professor on the Print and Digital faculty at the Missouri School of Journalism, discussed the implications for student journalists and the "teaching hospital" model at "Trauma Journalism: Training for Educators" on Oct. 15, 2015.

Reed got her start as a police reporter and has been a journalist for about 30 years. In the 1990s, she was a victim’s advocate and a consultant for the National Victim’s Center, focusing primarily on training victim assistance staff to interact effectively with the media. She has done work with the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma at Columbia University and the Disaster and Community Crisis Center at the University of Missouri. She now teaches a standalone trauma reporting class for undergraduate and graduate students. For nine years, she has also taught the cornerstone reporting class taken by undergraduate and graduate students who are pursuing degrees in photojournalism, magazine and print and digital media.  She is an editor at ColumbiaMissourian.com where she supervises students covering public safety (crime and the courts) and health care.
