First Responders: Moral Injury & Building Resilience

With Dr. Katy Kamkar, Ph.D. C.Psych, Clinical Psychologist at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), and Assistant Professor within the Department of Psychiatry, University of Toronto.

First responders are repeatedly exposed to distressing situations of morbidity and mortality on the job, which can have devastating effects on well-being – emotional, psychological, and physical. Particularly in situations where moral and ethical values and beliefs are challenged, first responders may be subject to not only PTSD, but also moral distress and injury that contribute to long-term (and often hidden) suffering. In this webinar, Dr. Katy Kamkar will explore the mental health impacts of moral injury, and discuss the ways in which resilience pathways can be built.

Discussion points:

  • Define moral injury, and how these impact mental health and function
  • Explain the difference between moral injury and PTSD
  • Key strategies for building resilience pathways


When: Thursday November 26th 2020

Time: Noon – 1pm EST (9 – 10am PST)

Speaker: Dr. Katy Kamkar
