Moral Injury:

Expanding our understanding of trauma

Participants: Angela Nickerson, University of New South Wales, and Ferdinand Garoff, Centre of Psychotraumatology

Moral injury refers the lasting psychological, social and spiritual harm caused by actions that transgress a person’s deeply held moral beliefs and expectations.

In this webinar, Angela Nickerson from the University of New South Wales and Ferdinand Garoff from the Centre of Psychotraumatology discuss the concept of moral injury and how it expands our understanding of trauma in refugees and humanitarian workers.

The webinar is a part of the Mental health and psychosocial support research webinar series hosted by the IFRC Reference Centre for Psychosocial Support and the Red Cross and Red Crescent Research Network on Mental Health and Psychosocial Support.
