Media Practice and Framework for Building Resilience Among Journalism Students

Joseph Oluchukwu Wogu, Jude M.C. Agbo.

Abstract
Effective media practice is essential for the overall functioning of society. This assumption has been acknowledged in the literature. For example, effective media practice is associated with democratic advancements, health promotion, growth in commerce, improved security, improvements in education, public enlightenment, as well as advances in science and technology. Despite the benefits derivable from effective media practice through the free flow of information, there are concerns that the traumatic environments through which journalists operate limit their effectiveness. This means, therefore, that building resilience in journalism students must be made a top priority to prepare them for trauma-ridden environments which they will face after school. The objective of this study was to provide a framework for building resilience in journalism students. The questionnaire-based survey research was carried out in South-East, Nigeria. The sample was made up of 384 (192 journalism teachers and 192 practising journalists). The researchers made use of a combination of descriptive and inferential statistics to analyze the data for the study. Results show that both journalists and journalism teachers agreed that a significant relationship exists between exposure to PTEs and journalism practice. Also, our result suggest that Maslow's theory offers a useful framework to guide media owners in motivating journalists to put in their best in the job and making the environment less traumatic; and for the training of journalists so that they can better cope with the trauma associated with journalism in Nigeria.

Key words: media practice, re-training, journalism students, training
