Moral Injury: Applying Lessons Learned from a Military Context

MSPGH Seminar Room 515, Level 5
207 Bouverie Street

Parkville

Booking not required

The term 'moral injury' was coined out of a growing recognition that military service members face moral and ethical challenges in the context of war that are traumatic and have long-term mental health consequences. Because of its origins, the bulk of the research on moral injury to date has been conducted in military samples; yet, there is a growing recognition that morally injurious events can occur in a variety of contexts. This talk will define moral injury, describe research on moral injury from a military context, discuss how lessons from this work can be applied to different contexts, and highlight current challenges for the field.
