In Focus: Moral Injury

New In Focus now available on Moral Injury.

A collection of reports focused on the recognition, assessment, and recommendations of coping with Moral Injury in first responders. The National Center for PTSD states moral injury can occur when, “in traumatic or unusually stressful circumstances, people may perpetrate, fail to prevent, or witness events that contradict deeply held moral beliefs and expectations.” It can have long-lasting psychological and emotional impact, which can show on-the-job as well as in personal life.
