Moral Injury: A Deeper Insight into the Intricacies of PTSD Among Veterans

Tom Seals

The history of the development of psychological trauma from exposure to events of danger to human life and well-being, known today as PTSD, has been a part of the human condition for as long as recorded history has occurred. In 1000 BCE, an Egyptian combat veteran named Hori wrote about his pre-battle experience- "You determine to go forward... Shuddering seizes you, the hair on your head stands on end, your soul lies in your hand."


Moral Injury by Dr. Tom Seals delves into the intricate layers of moral conflict that soldiers and individuals face in the aftermath of traumatic experiences. Drawing from biblical narratives and contemporary examples, Dr. Seals illuminates the profound impact of violating one's moral code.


Moral Injury is a profound exploration of the spiritual dimensions of trauma, offering invaluable insights for veterans, clinicians, and anyone grappling with the complexities of moral conflict and spiritual redemption. Dr. Seals' compassionate approach and deep understanding of both human nature and divine truth make this book an indispensable resource for navigating the complexities of moral injury and finding healing through spiritual renewal.
