CDP Presents: Moral Injury Recognition and Care - Online via Adobe Connect
27 July 2017, Noon to 1:30 p.m. Eastern
This 90-minute webinar (60 minutes instruction, 30 minutes Q&A), led by William Nash, M.D. is sponsored in part by the Cohen Veterans Network. Participants will learn about how increasing attention has been drawn to the concept of moral injury, conceived to be a potentially lasting adverse health outcome that may result from exposure to events which strongly contradict deeply held expectations about right and wrong, duty and obligation. Although research on moral injury is in its infancy, the concept enjoys broad and growing acceptance in science, religion, and the arts because of its face validity. In this presentation, theoretical underpinnings of the concept of moral injury will be described, emerging research on moral injury will be reviewed, and challenges for the prevention, recognition, and care of moral injury will be identified.
- Participants will be able to define moral injury as a psychological health state, and discriminate moral injury from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and complicated bereavement.
- Participants will be able to compare emerging approaches to the clinical and non-clinical care of morally injured persons.
