Moral injury is increasingly acknowledged as the signature wound of this generation of veterans. On returning from combat, service members can experience a host of challenges, particularly given the shame they often feel over what happened down range. Rather than trying to block or eradicate self-destructive thoughts, acceptance and commitment therapy is a treatment option that warrants consideration, as it helps individuals to “live with” what they’ve done while in combat.
