Item Open AccessMoral Injury, Chaplaincy and Mental Health Provider Approaches to Intervention: A Scoping Review(Springer, 2022-03-15) Jones, Kimberley, A.; Freijah, Isabella; Carey, Lindsay; Carleton, R. Nicholas; Devenish‑Meares, Peter; Dell, Lisa; Rodrigues, Sara; Madden, Kelsey; Johnson, Lucinda; Hosseiny, Fardous; Phelps, Andrea, J.The aim of this research was to describe the evidence examining the approaches taken by mental health providers (MHPs) and chaplains to address symptoms related to moral injury (MI) or exposure to potentially morally injurious events (PMIEs). This research also considers the implications for a holistic approach to address symptoms related to MI that combines mental health and chaplaincy work. A scop- ing review of literature was conducted using Medline, PsycINFO, Embase, Central Register of Controlled Trials, Proquest, Philosphers Index, CINAHL, SocINDEX, Academic Search Complete, Web of Science and Scopus databases using search terms related to MI and chaplaincy approaches or psychological approaches to MI. The search identified 35 eligible studies: 26 quantitative studies and nine qualita- tive studies. Most quantitative studies (n = 33) were conducted in military samples. The studies examined interventions delivered by chaplains (n = 5), MHPs (n = 23) and combined approaches (n = 7). Most studies used symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and/or depression as primary outcomes. Various approaches to addressing MI have been reported in the literature, including MHP, chaplaincy and combined approaches, however, there is currently limited evidence to support the effectiveness of any approach. There is a need for high quality empirical studies assessing the effectiveness of interventions designed to address MI-related symp- toms. Outcome measures should include the breadth of psychosocial and spiritual impacts of MI if we are to establish the benefits of MHP and chaplaincy approaches and the potential incremental value of combining both approaches into a holistic model of care Item Open AccessTowards a Holistic Model of Care for Moral Injury: An Australian and New Zealand Investigation into the Role of Police Chaplains in Supporting Police Members following exposure to Moral Transgression(Springer, 2023-09-11) Phelps, Andrea J.; Madden, Kelsey; Carleton, R. Nicholas; Johnson, Lucinda; Carey, Lindsay B.; Mercier, Jean-Michel; Mellor, Andrew; Baills, Jeffrey; Forbes, David; Devenish-Meares, Peter; Hosseiny, Fardous; Dell, LisaPolice members can be exposed to morally transgressive events with potential for lasting psychosocial and spiritual harm. Through interviews with police members and police chaplains across Australia and New Zealand, this qualitative study ex- plores the current role that police chaplains play in supporting members exposed to morally transgressive events. The availability of chaplains across police services and the close alignment between the support they offer, and the support sought by police, indicates they have an important role. However, a holistic approach should also consider organizational factors, the role of leaders, and access to evidence- based treatment in collaboration with mental health practitioners.
