Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma
Abstract


Re-traumatization is the opening of old emotional wounds and the anxious anticipation of such re-wounding. It may be worse that the original trauma because it implies a string of "bad luck"-a sense of endless travail rather than one bad episode that has come and gone. It often feels like the old trauma plus a new trauma plus a loss of psychological safety. Psychological safety may be a myth (the thought that everything will eventually turn out right) but it is a helpful myth.

Abstract


This toolkit is intended to assist entities in planning meetings and events that are accessible to persons
with disabilities. It provides recommendations and checklists for all phases of a meeting or an event,
from choosing the venue to promotion, registration, presentations, materials, social events, meals,
and staff and volunteer training. Note, however, that it is impossible to anticipate every barrier that
might limit or preclude participation by a valued member. Moreover, because new ideas for improving
accessibility and new technologies continue to emerge, this toolkit should be viewed as a living
document that is meant to evolve.
