Moral Injury and Resilience During COVID

Why Words Matter

The stress and moral suffering of the COVID pandemic has created a concurrent crisis in the mental health of healthcare professionals. Join us for a presentation from Elizabeth Holman, PsyD, on how to address this crisis and what tools individuals can use to mitigate moral distress and find resilience.

Dr. Holman will discuss why the language of distress is important; how the framework of moral injury changes our approach to the problem, and what actions all of us can take to address it.
