Moral Injury in Behavioral Healthcare

Provided in Partnership with the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS)

September 1, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am ET

Webinar Description

Trauma is often a parallel process of reciprocal experiences shared between organizations, practitioners, & clients. Burnout is a familiar term in the field and many have claimed to experience it, but what if you were not actually “burnt out?”

Webinar Objectives

  • Participants will differentiate between burnout, compassion fatigues, and moral injury
  • Participants will draw parallels between burnout, compassion fatigue, moral injury, racial trauma, and organizational trauma
  • Participants will encourage others to research and share the relationship between moral injury and behavioral healthcare

This webinar is relevant for healthcare providers, social workers, and community organizations that support mental health of both youth and adult populations.
