Call of Conscience
Quaker House is active in teaching young adults about understanding conscientious objection as well as the organizations and meetings that support them. We have published a Resource Guide for working with young adults on discerning whether they are led in this direction and, if so, how to create a file of documentation. The Resource Guide is available for purchase from Quaker House as well as on Amazon. Our PowerPoint presentation on conscientious objection is freely available. Please contact Quaker House if you would like us to email it to you.
Quaker House does presentations on moral injury, how it is distinguished from PTSD, and advocates for better understanding of this isolating and devastating injury to the soul. Psychologist Cecelia Yocum has also published a book through us on helping individuals with moral injury, which is available through Quaker House and on Amazon.
