Dr. Troiani Featured on WGN-TV

In the Media | 12.23.19

Joseph E. Troiani, Ph.D., Director of the Master of Arts in Military Psychology program for Adler University’s Online Campus, was recently interviewed for a news segment on WGN-TV. The segment featured Kevin Milligan, a former Army Ranger who was diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) after serving overseas from 1998 to 2003.

In an effort to spread healing contact, Milligan started The Unconditional Hug, where he offered hugs to passersby in downtown Chicago. Dr. Troiani commented on how the ability to be close to someone can facilitate the healing process for those diagnosed with PTSD.

Watch the WGN-TV story, “Soldier’s New Mission: Giving Free Hugs to Help Others’ Mental Health.”
