ROW | Webinar – A Line in the Sand: A lived experience account of workplace trauma and PTSD


13 September 2023, 12.00-1.00pm (NZST)

Dean Yates was the ideal warzone correspondent: courageous, compassionate, dedicated. After years of facing the worst, including covering the Bali bombings and the Boxing Day tsunami, one final incident undid him. In this gritty and compelling interview, we chat with Dean, author of Line in the Sand, about his lived experience of trauma, PTSD, moral injury and his three admissions to the Ward 17 psych unit in Melbourne.


Note: This session contains potentially disturbing content that may be distressing for some people.

The agenda

1. Guest interview: We’ll start this session with the guest interview, facilitated by Sarah McGuinness.

2. Group discussion: After the interview, then we’ll open the ‘floor’ for discussion, and we welcome any questions you have about the interview topic.

3. News: We’ll invite you to share any news or wins, or ask workplace wellbeing questions of the group. Sarah will also share updates from the world of workplace wellbeing.



The event is open to members of ROW Green and ROW Gold only.

FYI – The discussion section will be recorded to turn into a podcast. The Q & A or subsequent discussions will not be included in the podcast (and please let us know if you have any concerns).
