An expansion of a 2018 Dialogues on the Experience of War project that focuses on moral injury from the experience of war, with extended discussion leader training and a revised syllabus.

In a society that focuses on posttraumatic stress disorder as the dominant narrative to describe the personal cost of war, the deeper moral or spiritual suffering veterans experience remains obscured. These moral and spiritual dialogues are key to developing civic understanding of the war experience and require sustained discussions over time. What types of moral injuries do wars create? How do veterans' varying identities influence their experiences and how can we think more deeply about such suffering? This program synthesizes poetry, Shakespeare’s plays and graphic novels to explore the nature and diversity of moral injury. Warrior’s Path will train six veterans as Discussion Leaders to facilitate two series of 10-week veteran-to-veteran discussion groups and five veteran-to-civilian dialogues. The program aims to prepare veterans to publicly discuss the moral impact of war, thus cultivating a deeper civic understanding of this experience.
