Warner earned his B.S. in psychology at Ferris State University in 2021 and his M.S. in clinical psychology at Eastern Michigan University in 2023, where he investigated the role of bodily processes (e.g., body regard) and interpersonal factors (e.g., parent-child body talk) in nonsuicidal self-injury and disordered eating behaviors.
