As the Invisible Scars project neared completion, it was obvious a second film needed to be created.

That "other thing" that looked like PTSD and shared so much in common needed to be explored....

Many warriors were being diagnosed with PTSD, but they reported that the treatment didn't work... because they were treating the wrong thing.

HERE'S THE 4-1-1

Everyone has a conscience- something that steers us.

Here's how conscience affects people: 

  • If you know to do right but do the opposite the result may be a guilty conscience.

  • If you do what is right, the result should be a clear conscience.

In other words, if you put a gag on the voice of “do right” you will experience a sense of guilt. Sometimes this is a misplaced guilt as the “wrong” committed is not your fault or wasn’t actually a wrong.

Conscience is the voice of "right vs. wrong" inside us.

Some think of it as a voice or moral compass inside us,. Others believe it springs forth from our inner being (from our spirit or soul), giving it more of a “religious” or “spiritual” connection.

You may have seen it depicted as an angel and a devil with one sitting on each shoulder of a person, whispering in their ear. The angel tells her to do right; the devil tells her to do wrong.

While deployed, many warriors are required to do things which violate their conscience, things which go against the "human code"

It might look like PTSD on the outside, but it's different on the inside.

Whereas PTSD creates a “flight or fight” response, MI typically manifests as overwhelming feelings of guilt or shame.

PTSD often requires medication in addition to other kinds of therapies. MI must be addressed in a much different matter. 

(The two may co-exist, but they are different and must be treated differently.)

PTSD must be addressed as being primarily a mental and emotional issue while MI, though it may have an emotional component, is basically a moral or spiritual issue.

PTSD causes a person to respond to something OUTSIDE of themselves, a threat. Moral Injury goes INSIDE.

It includes- 

  • Violating or going against one’s core moral beliefs, one’s conscience (Note: this may be a personal choice or one demanded or ordered by someone in authority).
  • Evaluating one’s behavior (actions) negatively to the extent they can no longer think of themselves as a decent human being.

The result is often overwhelming feelings of guilt + shame.

Notice the chart. 

  • Whereas GUILT is based on something we did- something that may be out of character for us...
  • SHAMES focuses on who we are, our identity. 

Without healing, the two create a power-punch that creates a sense of aloneness, hiding, and feelings of not being worthy of even being human.

Honoring the Code is a tool to equip you- or someone you know- to deal with the deep issues...

You'll hear the stories of warriors who've been there, you'll glean insights from professionals, and you'll see a path forward- a real light at the end of the tunnel.
