Moral injury describes the profound psychological distress that can arise after perpetrating events that transgress an individual’s moral or ethical code or failing to prevent people from carrying out such acts. Moral injury can be part of what is traumatic about an event and can contribute to the development of PTSD as well as other mental health problems. Most research into moral injury has been with military members. However, a range of occupational groups, such as healthcare workers, journalists, social workers and aid workers, are at risk of moral injurious experiences.

In this webinar, Dr. Wild will cover how to treat moral injury as part of treatment for PTSD. A range of intervention tools will be introduced to target cognitive and behavioural processes that maintain moral injurious appraisals and associated distress. Imagery interventions are a key treatment tool when working with moral injury and will be a core focus of this webinar.

Dr. Jennifer Wild is Professor of Military Mental Health at the University of Melbourne. She holds affiliate status at the University of Oxford where she developed evidence-based interventions to prevent PTSD and depression in emergency workers. Her area of expertise is in developing and evaluating evidence-based interventions for anxiety and stress disorders, and in developing preventative interventions for people at risk of trauma, such as emergency responders and military members. She has written over 80 publications, including book chapters, and two recently published popular science books on resilience, including Be Extraordinary: 7 Key Skills to Transform Your Life from Ordinary to Extraordinary. Prof Wild regularly appears in the media giving advice rooted in science for preventing the persistence of trauma-related mental health problems.

Participants who complete this workshop are eligible to receive 1.5 CE credits.
