Heather A. Warfield is an associate professor in the School of Counseling, Psychology & Therapy. The focus of her clinical work has been adolescents, military veterans, global comparative mental health practices, and clinical supervision – – all underpinned by a narrative psychology paradigm. Dr. Warfield’s research broadly explores the psychological, therapeutic, and healing aspects of pilgrimage journeys and she is working specifically on pilgrimages to the Western Front of WWI. This work is positioned in the historical precedent of pilgrimages undertaken by military veterans, families, and official state delegations as well as the current pilgrimages happening to sites along the Western Front in Belgium and France. Dr. Warfield is a member of the ‘Ruines de guerre’ program funded through the French Agence nationale de la recherche (ANR) and an affiliate researcher of the Institut de Recherches Historiques de Septentrion at the University of Lille. She is the series editor of ‘Pilgrimage Studies’ (Peter Lang Publishing) and the editor for the forthcoming volume ‘Multidisciplinary Perspectives on Pilgrimage: Historical, Current, and Future Directions.’ Additionally, she is the creator and host of ‘Meaningful Journeys,’ which is a podcast dedicated to conversations with pilgrims, pilgrimage studies scholars, and people who live near pilgrimage sites.
