This critically important work recognizes that moral injuries are spiritual in nature and thus require spiritual interventions. It also recognizes the unique tools that chaplains with a sound understanding of military culture and mental health issues bring to the healing journey.Who can better speak to the spiritual aspects of moral injuries than a Navy SEAL and chaplain? An outstanding resource for chaplains and other spiritual care providers that will ultimately benefit our morally injured veterans and their families greatly.

Moral Injury Reconciliation (MIR) transcends a 'symptom-focused' treatment orientation. Using a transdiagnostic approach featuring religious/spiritual foundations, MIR moves beyond single-diagnosis protocols. It addresses multiple diagnoses and targets the comorbidities found in active-duty and Veteran populations. MIR introduces a new paradigm in Veteran and mental healthcare.
