- Describe military moral injury (MMI) as it is currently constructed in research literature.
- Identify and summarize available MMI assessments.
- Explain the importance of conducting debriefing and defusing sessions after a potentially moral injurious event.
- Describe a spiritually based therapy technique and a resiliency life coaching model.
By the end of Session 2, participants will be able to:
- Explain MMI from the context and perspective of women veterans.
- Understand the importance of developing cultural competence to be able to provide effective support to women veterans.
