Veterans who present with PTSD and moral injury often report spiritual distress that places them at higher risk for suicide. In this podcast, we share up to date research on moral injury, spiritual distress, and empirically tested techniques for helping veterans use their own spiritual resources as an asset in their recovery. “Building Spiritual Strength,” a manualized group intervention for PTSD and moral injury, is described, along with resources for therapists who would like to learn new techniques for assisting veterans who are managing PTSD and moral injury.
