Moral injury is common amongst military, police, and first responders, though has only recently been recognized by mental health professionals. If your protagonist is emotionally conflicted from responding to grave injuries or death, working through the trauma they’ve suffered--the haunting guilt and shame--is essential in building a character that is true to life. We’ll study moral injury, how it differs from post-traumatic stress disorder and how it can impact your primary and secondary characters and the story line you create.
