Moral Injury is suffering that manifests as a character change in people because of challenges to their core moral foundations, which orient people to what they love and what matters most to them. This presentation will offer prevailing definitions of moral injury, both clinical and spiritual; discuss its relationship to trauma, such as PTSD; describe factors and experiences that may cause it in various professions and life circumstances; identify emotions and behaviors that indicate moral suffering; and suggest various integrating strategies that can contribute to healing.


Presenter: Dr. Rita Brock
