Cultivating moral resilience

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Decades of research have documented the frequency, sources, and consequences of moral distress. However, few studies have focused on interventions designed to diminish its negative effects. The cultivation of moral resilience - the ability to respond positively to the distress and adversity caused by an ethically complex situation - is proposed as a method to transform moral distress.
