EWA Webinar for Journalists: Interviewing Children

At a webinar for journalists on Tuesday, Dec. 18 at 1 p.m. Eastern time, EWA will share information from a forthcoming guide to interviewing children. We’ll discuss best practices for before, during, and after the interview, as well as cover concerns about access and privacy. Using social media tools for interviews with teens will also be covered.

I also spoke with Huffington Post senior media reporter Michael Calderone about the controversy over how the media handled talking with children in the immediate aftermath of the Sandy Hook shooting. You can read his take here. My post on this issue is here.
