This presentation will focus on Trauma-Informed Guilt Reduction, an intervention to address moral injury and trauma-related guilt. Moral injury and trauma-related guilt can occur after a traumatic event or when someone perpetrates or witnesses acts that go against deeply held values and then must live with ramifications of these events. Dr. Norman will share her research on the guilt and shame aspects of trauma and moral injury and give a session-by-session overview of Trauma-Informed Guilt Reduction Therapy (TrIGR), a psychotherapy to reduce guilt stemming from trauma and moral injury.
