MORAL INJURY: WHAT IS IT AND HOW DOES IT AFFECT OUR CLIENTS
Presented by Chaplain Fred Tittle
Chaplain Fred Tittle is currently a clinical chaplain at the Palo Alto VA Health Care Center where he provides spiritual care within the Post Traumatic Stress Center and other units. He was trained and worked as a chaplain and trauma specialist at Kessler Rehabilitation Center, The Brain Injury Association of New Jersey, The Boggs Center for Developmental Disabilities and The Robert Wood Johnson Medical Center in New Jersey. Prior to getting his divinity master's degree at Princeton Theological Seminary, Chaplain Tittle served within the US Marine Corps Active and Reserves for over thirty years, most of the time in combat or combat support. He is currently retired from the Marines.
Veterans who have participated in or witnessed intense human suffering and violence may experience moral injury which extends beyond psychological effects to a veteran’s spiritual, emotional, and social belief system. This program will help us better understand this concept, improve client communication and enhance our advocacy skills.
