Hosted by the Shay Center at Volunteers of America and the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health
A Conference for everyone, including Clinicians, Chaplains, Community Members, Congregational Leaders, Veterans, Consumers and Family Members who want to learn more about Moral Injury, explore recovery strategies, and connect to others who care and want to help.
The Conference offers everyone a chance to gain deeper knowledge of Moral Injury and learn recovery strategies for military veterans, for people seeking spiritual counseling, for people using mental health services, and for new populations and professionals whose work includes physical and emotional care like family caregiving, social work, medicine, and chaplaincy. New applications of Moral Injury will include religious communities, the incarceration and child welfare systems, social movements, and caregiving work. The Conference is also designed to provide professionals and students working in mental health, spiritual health, and community and congregational leadership with continuing education with particular emphasis on spiritual, mental, emotional, social, and cultural.
Attendees will be encouraged to work collaboratively, share knowledge, and learn from each other as well as the faculty.
