Moral Injury-Moral Stress: Searching for Meaning Amidst Suffering

Carrie Doehring, PhD will speak on the topic of Moral Injury and Moral Stress. Unlike post-traumatic stress, which is rooted in the fear of life threats, moral injuries and stress arise from shame, guilt and the betrayal of not practicing one’s core values. This cuts people off from social support and makes them question the value of their life which can lead to hopelessness and suicidal ideation. Strategies for coping and finding means for support will be explored.
