Staff Perspective: A Discussion with Dr. Rita Nakashima Brock on Moral Distress and Helping COVID-19 Healthcare Workers

Dr. Deb Nofziger

Dr. Rita Brock recently shared her thoughts on moral distress and injury and COVID-19 frontline workers with me. Dr. Brock has spent much of her career as an academic in philosophy and religion, obtaining her doctorate in this field in 1988. Her interests turned toward moral injury after a 2009 article by Dr. Brett Litz “grabbed me and wouldn’t let me go.”

Staff Perspective: Military Families Share Their Experiences During COVID-19

Dr. Jenny Phillips

Following up on Christy Collette’s piece on "Military Family Resilience during COVID-19," this week’s blog will share additional information about the unique impacts of the pandemic on military families.

Staff Perspective: Military Family Resilience and COVID-19

Resilience in military families is the norm. As the effects of the pandemic continue to be felt, and in many cases amplified, the need for all of us to adjust to changes, sometimes on a daily basis, is greater than ever before. Civilian families can benefit from the lessons learned from military families across the generations. Creating new traditions, staying connected with love ones through long separations, and major shifts in social networks are all skills military families learn early in military service.

Staff Perspective: Learning to Live with Danger

Dr. Deb Nofziger

The other night, I was talking with a neighbor about my irritation with loved ones whom I viewed as having an extreme reaction to the current pandemic. When I talk with others and hear about how worried and anxious they are -- and what I view as over-the-top rituals they perform to sanitize their world -- I have found myself getting frustrated with them and trying to convince them that they don’t have to be so worried. At the same time, I am worried about my own reaction, or perceived lack thereof. Is there something wrong with them… or me?

Staff Perspective: The Challenges of COVID-19 on Military Families and the Resilience of Military Kids

The impact of COVID-19 on the U.S. military continues to grow, presenting extraordinary challenges to readiness: joint military exercises have been cancelled; U.S. bases in Europe have been closed or locked down; physical fitness tests postponed; graduations cancelled; promotions delayed; elective surgeries and routine care temporarily suspended; onboarding has come to a stop; sweeping travel bans have halted the movement of many, while others have been unexpectedly mobilized, etc. As our soldiers rapidly respond to contain and combat COVID-19, military families are charged with the familiar mission of supporting our nations troops in the face of uncertainty.
