Moral Injury — Moral Stress: Searching for Meaning Amidst Suffering

The Interfaith Network on Mental Illness presents a free conference on October 18-19

Carrie Doehring, PhD will speak on the topic of Moral Injury and Moral Stress. Unlike posttraumatic stress, which is rooted in the fear of life threats, moral injuries and stress arise from shame, guilt and betrayal of not practicing ones 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.

Thursday October 18th, 7pm-9pm 
Dr. Doehring’s presentation will be followed by a response from a member of the clergy, a member of the vet center, and a mental health practitioner. (Open to All)
