Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Scholarship Awarded to GSSW Doctoral Student

DECEMBER 6, 2012

Boston College Graduate School of Social Work doctoral student Alison Rhodes has received the Sarah Haley Memorial Fund Social Work Scholarship in Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. The award, given to a clinician in direct service to traumatized individuals, recognizes demonstrated potential to further the understanding of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) through clinical work, research, preparation for teaching, writing for publication, or the design of an innovative community program.

Rhodes’ research interests center on trauma, processes of resilience, healing and growth, and developing and evaluating interventions and services to improve survivors’ lives. Through the Trauma Center of Justice Resource Institute, Rhodes worked on a study of the efficacy of a 10-week yoga intervention for adult women with treatment-resistant, chronic PTSD stemming from prolonged exposure to interpersonal violence beginning in childhood. She has also collaborated on an NIH-funded phenomenological study of men’s experiences of healing after child maltreatment.
