The Shay Moral Injury Center

Named for Dr. Jonathan Shay, who originated the concept of moral injury, the Shay Moral Injury Center at Volunteers of America conducts research on and promotes deeper understanding of moral injury in the many populations who experience it. Through our education and training programs, we offer effective strategies and processes that support healing. Under the direction of Rev. Rita Nakashima Brock, Ph.D., the center builds on Volunteers of America's work, spanning more than a century, of helping veterans and others who live with the burden of moral injury.
