Moral Injury and Recovery: How They Relate to Mental Health 

Moral injury, a term first used with military veterans, has reached epidemic proportions in the past 2 years among workers in healthcare, senior services, education, and first responders. While it is not a mental health disorder, it is a profound form of suffering; research has found that when moral injury is not identified and addressed alongside or even within therapy, it can negatively impact successful outcomes in mental health treatments for PTSD.  Learn what moral injury is, the differences from trauma and PTSD, and how to determine if someone might be experiencing it. Gain strategies that can be used to alleviate it.

Presented by Director of the Shay Moral Injury Center, Dr. Rita Nakashima Brock, Rel. M., M.A., Ph.D.
