Moral adversity is arising in all areas of our lives. Many people are struggling to understand the moral trade-offs that accompany decisions about how to preserve the health of more people at the expense of others; others are concerned about how decision making about health is changing in response to the scarcity of healthcare resources; others are struggling with social inequities, racism or disrespect of individuals or groups; and still others are concerned about the social norms of communication among friends, families, colleagues, and community. The sources of moral adversity are diverse and wide-ranging. Responses range from mild discomfort associated with lapses in social distancing to moral distress because a core value has been threatened to full-blown moral outrage. How do we preserve our integrity in the midst of these challenges? How do we cultivate our moral resilience to respond to moral adversity without compromising our integrity?
Join Cynda Hylton Rushton PhD, RN, FAAN Professor of Nursing & Pediatrics with the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics & School of Nursing as she guides you through this 3-part series which includes facilitated discussion, reflective practices, and offer practical strategies for responding to moral adversity by cultivating moral resilience.
Each session will include a pre-recorded segment followed by a one-hour discussion facilitated by Dr. Rushton. Participants are asked to create space while viewing the pre-recorded session for reflection and journaling.
