Covering Domestic Violence: A Guide for Journalists and Other Media Professionals

General Material
Published Date
January, 2008

This guide is designed to assist journalists in accurately covering domestic violence homicides and other related stories.

Excerpt: “WSCADV has developed a guide for journalists covering domestic violence. This guide includes: domestic violence statistics; an overview of domestic violence laws; tips for covering domestic violence crimes in the most complete and accurate way possible; and resource information that can be incorporated into coverage. The guide is written for journalists, but can be utilized by domestic violence advocates to support their work with local media. We encourage advocates to contact local reporters covering domestic violence crimes and fatalities, and share this guide with them.”
