In this episode of the podcast, we interview Dr. Herbert Harman, a psychiatrist who works as a practice line director for Vituity. We will be discussing “moral injury”, an emerging term defined as “perpetuating, failing to prevent, bearing witness to, or learning about acts that transgress deeply held moral beliefs and expectations” (Griffin et al., 2019). Moral injury is similar to PTSD but has distinct differences. While it is often seen in military settings, various front-line careers also present opportunities for moral injury, including psychiatry.
