Sacramento/Davis District Presents: Military Service and Moral Injury: General Concepts and Intervention Strategies

Description: Moral injury is the psychic trauma caused by acting, failing to act, or witnessing acts that conflict with a person’s core values.  Over 200,000 US troops have been deployed to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, many of them multiple times.  Through case studies, veterans’ writing and music and discussion, learn to recognize moral injuries and develop strategies for helping veterans heal these wounds that are endemic in war.  In the process, we will join veterans in their grief and participate more fully in healing the nation that sent them to war.

Learning Objectives: after participation in this training event participants will be able to:

  • Understand the general concepts of moral injury and integrate them into trauma-focused psychotherapy practices
  • Identify the three types of combat situations that may result in moral injury
  • Utilize intervention strategies that promote healing and transformation of combat trauma

Learning Activities and Methods:  Didactic, power point, discussion, case examples, video.

Presenter: Catherine Lieb, LCSW, has practiced trauma-focused psychotherapy for more than 20 years in community mental health, at Sacramento Family Service Agency and in private practice.  While working at Veterans Affairs from 2008 to 2011 she had the opportunity to work with veterans suffering from the aftereffects of combat and military sexual trauma.  She is currently in private practice and is working on a book, Beyond Treatment Delusions: Healing the Psychological Wounds of War - for Veterans and Society.
