The Interfaith Network on Mental Illness, a Boulder County non-profit, which provides educational opportunities for the residents of Boulder County, is proud to present Dr. Carrie Doehring on February 21st and 22nd for 3 free lectures on the topic of Moral Injury and Moral Stress.  Dr. Doehring is a renowned professor of Pastoral Care and Counseling at The Iliff School of Theology and at Denver University.

Unlike post-traumatic stress, which is rooted in the fear of life threats, moral injury and moral stress arise from the shame, guilt, and betrayal of not practicing one’s core values.  These profound feelings can cut people off from social support and can make them question the value of their own life. Often this leads to feelings of intense hopelessness and suicidal ideation. 

Dr. Doehring will discuss in detail various strategies for coping with moral injury as well as ways of finding means for support. 

Her lectures will be on Thursday February 21st from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm at The Atonement Lutheran Church which is located at 685 Inca Parkway in Boulder as well as on Friday February 22nd from 9:00 am – 11:30 am at Congregation Har Hashem, located at 3950 Baseline Road also in Boulder. 

In addition, she will be lecturing in Longmont on Friday evening February 22nd from 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm at The United Church of Christ which is located at 1500 9th Avenue, Longmont.

All three lectures are open to the public and all are free of charge.

They call me "NewsHound IV," because I'm a clever Finnegan, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was a rescue pup and glad to be on the scent!
