What are effective interventions for veterans who have experienced moral injury?


Military personnel are often confronted with situations whereby under extreme conditions, they make decisions, take action or exposed to events that challenge their ethical and moral beliefs. Transgressions of ethical and moral beliefs and inner conflict can arise from such circumstances and lead to potential mental health problems. The aim of this Rapid Evidence Assessment (REA) was to examine the evidence and efficacy of interventions targeting moral injury in military personnel and veterans. Psychological and interdisciplinary therapies that may be appropriate in targeting symptoms associated with moral injury were identified and assessed for their effectiveness in treating moral injury.
