"Moral injury is a complex and multi-faceted concept, which is closely related to the psychological, socio-economical and cultural aspects. An awareness of moral injury issues is crucial, hence prevention measures against it are imperative." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"As a group, the treatments offered to Moral Injury patients were rather broad-based. However, some patients were treated with very unique procedures like group therapy, case management, and vocational rehabilitation. In some of these unique cases, the patients were treated with medications or therapies that had not been previously introduced to Moral Injury patients. Thus, the treatments offered to Moral Injury patients may vary depending on circumstances. There is generally a more diverse range of treatments for Moral Injury patients than the treatments for major depression." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"There are an estimated one million people with multiple moral injury incidents per year in the United States. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study to document the overall and nationally estimated incidence rate of moral injury." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"It is important to address how to treat, when to treatment, and where to treat moral injury. Moral injury cannot be defined by itself alone. Moral injury needs to be carefully considered when attempting to heal it. And to heal it, treatment must address the cause as well as the effect." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Many different factors can result in a moral injury, but if a child experiences abuse or neglect the likelihood is increased. Such injuries encompass the physical, socioeconomic, and emotional consequences of maltreatment. It is important for the health care team to be aware of potential sources of such injuries and to work with individuals and families to avoid them." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The present research indicates the importance of understanding and assessing moral issues, and thus how to use the concept of moral injury in clinical practice." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The deep vr may not only help to preserve a patient's health by controlling the symptoms, but it will improve the quality of life. Therefore, we should pay more attention to our deep vr doctors and learn more about the deep vr technology. We also need to do more research before deciding whether to continue our deep vr practice or to stop." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The findings suggest that moral injury is highly heritable. This finding is of particular relevance given the fact that moral injury can have long-lasting disabling effects. Data from a recent study support the theoretical implication that moral injury shares familial aspects with major disorders: anxiety disorders, depression, and borderline personality disorder." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Moral injury has a complex and serious outcome because it may affect not only the perpetrator but the entire community in which they live as well. An adequate understanding of moral injury and its treatment will help improve its outcome." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Currently, VR seems to be well used as a therapeutic tool by practitioners as an alternative to classical psychotherapy because of the rapid and easy integration with the patient's psychoanalytic work." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"In a controlled and blinded study of over 1100 adult male medical-surgical residents, the authors' findings suggested that the deep VR system is not associated with procedural learning but rather with a'reward-expectancy effect that is triggered by a small procedural learning component.' This'reward-expectancy effect' may be an important component in many cognitive tasks where there are cognitively oriented rewards. The authors conclude that 'deep VR is not a learning tool for procedural learning'; rather, it is an exciting way to achieve rewarding objectives, which in many cases are not related to medical training." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"It is important to recognize this condition and understand how it can impact the quality of life of all people with disabilities and, potentially, people who have the abilities but may not receive the same resources as they could. A growing body of research suggests that moral injury can occur from an interdependence relationship in which we place a stake in each other's lives with disability, and in turn, our moral involvement in our friends, associates, and colleagues can be a stressor." - Anonymous Online Contributor
