Moral Injury is the wounding of the conscience from a traumatic experience such as combat or sexual trauma. Moral Injury may occur when one experiences a traumatic event that conflicts with or violates a core moral value or deeply held belief.
Inner healing is aided by weekly homework exercises, group reflection and the support of other women Veterans who have had similar experiences.
