A Code of Conduct for How Media Should Interview Trauma Survivors
Reflections from a trauma specialist and survivor.
Louise Godbold has worked variously as a commercials producer in Europe, a "development girl" in Hollywood, and, for the last 20 years, in social programs. In 2010, she became dedicated to helping those with trauma when she started work at Echo, a non-profit that now, under her leadership, specializes in trauma training. Louise was one of the first women to come forward in October of 2017 about Harvey Weinstein. Since that time, Louise has conducted trauma training for sexual assault survivors and their supporters in the entertainment industry, and has given television and press interviews internationally on the topics of trauma and resilience.
