Hendricks Chapel to Host Discussion on Moral Injury and Soul Repair
Hendricks Chapel will present “When Does War End? Moral Injury and Soul Repair in the After Years,” a discussion with Rita Nakashima Brock, on Monday, March 24, at 4 p.m. in the chapel’s Noble Room. The event is free and open to the public.
Moral injury can be defined as a deep-seated sense of transgression, including feelings of shame, grief, meaninglessness and remorse, from having violated core moral beliefs.
Brock is founding co-director of the Soul Repair Center at Brite Divinity School in Fort Worth, Texas. She was a professor for 20 years and directed the Fellowship Program at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University, a prominent advanced research institute. She was a fellow at the Harvard Divinity School Center for Values in Public Life from 2001-02.
Brock’s latest book is, “Soul Repair: Recovering from Moral Injury After War” (Beacon Press, 2012), co-authored with Gabriella Lettini.
The discussion is co-sponsored by Hendricks Chapel, SU’s Veteran’s Resource Center and the David B. Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics. For more information, contact Hendricks Chapel at 315-443-2902.
