HRI Talks: Trauma and Moral Injury: Making the Invisible Wound Visible
This is a free, public Zoom event. A moderated discussion will be followed by a live Q&A with audience members. A recording will be available following the event.
The people our society sends to the front lines of catastrophe – the disasters, the conflicts, the pandemics – do invaluable, selfless work. Too often, they pay a price for their efforts. Increasingly, one of the tolls they pay is living with a form of trauma called moral injury.
In this HRI Talk, Dr. Ruth Lanius will lead a discussion on moral injury/distress and explore the emerging science that enables us to understand what’s happening in the brain and how to better treat individuals suffering from moral injury.
