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 one’s 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)                                                     Atonement Lutheran Church-684 Inca Parkway, Boulder

Friday October 19th, 9am-11:30am                                                               Dr. Doehring’s presentation will be followed by “break out sessions” facilitated by Kristin Erner, Bill Forbes, and Pedro Silva for mental health practitioners, clergy and faith leaders, and those who work with veterans                                                                                           Congregation Har HaShem-3950 Baseline Road, Boulder
