Milligan holds Counseling Research Conferenceposted 7/28/2017 11:31:48 AM
Kristy Walker, who spent 20 years in the U.S. Air Force as a paramedic, will be among those presenting Thursday night at Milligan College’s Counseling Research Conference. Walker, a student in Milligan’s Master of Science in Counseling program, will address new forms of treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), including virtual reality experiences where veterans can be transported virtually back to the warzone where they first experienced their trauma—and hopefully overcome it.
“Veterans with PTSD are underserved because they often don’t seek counseling due to the stigma associated with it,” Walker said.
Other Milligan graduate counseling students will present on such topics as “media use and ADHD,” “mental health disorders among lone-actor terrorists,” and “brain changes associated with mindfulness.” The public may attend the event for free at Milligan’s campus in Tennessee.
