Who is this conference for?
Are you in the related fields of a psychologist, social worker, family therapists, or chaplain? The 2022 Comprehensive Moral Injury Conference will help bridge the gap in knowledge by presenting introductory and intermediate level instruction on MI research, assessment tools, and interventions being used by thought leaders and practitioners in the fields of psychology, social work, chaplaincy, and other healthcare fields. This conference takes a holistic, collaborative approach to MI. Regardless of where clinicians, chaplains, and therapists work, they are likely to encounter a person with MI and should understand how to identify it, as well as help the person or get them the care they need.
This conference allowed participants to learn more about moral injury research, assessment, and treatment from thought leaders and practitioners in the field.
Assessment, Treatment, and Research on Moral Injury in a Wide Range of Populations and Settings
The 2022 Comprehensive Moral Injury Conference (CMIC) provided in-depth information from experts on moral injury. A range of settings were discussed including:
- First Responders,
- Women Veterans and Servicewomen,
- Healthcare Providers,
- Chaplains/Faith Leaders.
Moral Injury is a condition being talked about with more frequency. In 2009, it was Brett Litz who brought this condition to the forefront. He described moral injury as involving acts of transgression that create dissonance and conflict because it violates assumptions and beliefs about what is right and wrong and personal goodness. Moral injury is a syndrome that often occurs in the setting of trauma, such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), but MI is distinct and separate from PTSD” (Dr. Harold Koenig, Select Proceedings Book from the 2020 Women Veterans Military Moral Injury Conference).
Warfare, violent uprisings, COVID-19, and social justice issues have wreaked havoc on people’s souls and emotional health. Many are feeling morally injured and it is chaplains and faith leaders, psychologists, social workers, mental health counselors, clinicians, and physical and occupational therapists who are standing in the gap and treating these injured people. In the process, many of these care providers are also experiencing moral injury.
