VIDEO: What is moral injury, and how do we address it?

March 1, 2024  By Brittani Schroeder

Moral injury is widely understudied, especially where it concerns first responders and veterans. Because of this, moral injury is seen differently by officers, leaders, and clinicians.

In this episode of Blue Line, The Podcast, editor Brittani Schroeder is joined by Chief Mental Health Officer Derek Sienko, Lucie Tremblay, who is a retired deputy chief of Via Rail Canada and retired Senior Officer of the Canadian Armed Forces, and Phil Lancaster, a retired police detective, to discuss what changes need to be made in policing organizations to address moral injury.
