“Is That What It’s Called?!”

Many people suffering with moral injury or moral distress don’t know its name, often confusing their anguish with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or grief.

I created the Soul Console Community to help people like you better understand what moral trauma is, how it lives inside us, and how that shapes the stories we tell about ourselves and affects our relationships with others and the world. I also created it to give support that specifically speaks to your experience of moral injury or moral distress.

Honoring pain, reconciling difficult truths, transforming ways of thinking and being, and restoring moral integrity starts here.
