CHARLOTTE RHODES OF HOSPICE BECOMES CERTIFIED IN GRIEF COUNSELINGCharlotte Rhodes, Social Worker/Volunteer Coordinator at the Anna Mae Owen Residential Hospice House, has become certified as a grief recovery specialist by the Grief Recovery Institute.

“This certification allows me to meet with families and individuals and provide support and compassion using an established grief recovery method,” said Rhodes. “Although most would say they wouldn’t want my job, it’s easy for me to respond that it’s the most rewarding job I’ve ever had.”

Rhodes received her bachelor’s in Psychology from Bethel University and her Master’s in Social Work from Western Kentucky University. She has worked at Murray-Calloway County Hospital for seven years in the Hospice Department.

She attended an in-depth four day seminar on the teaching of the grief recovery method offered by the Grief Recovery Institute. The training provided tools to effectively help grievers recover from loss as well as an opportunity for personal healing. The program was developed by someone who was going through loss himself so this is not just a theory, but also a method that has worked for millions of people continuously for the past 40 years.

“This is a benefit for our Hospice Department because now she can offer one-on-one grief counseling with families as well as lead the Grief Recovery Support Group,” said Sherri Boyd, Director of Hospice at the Anna Mae Owen Residential Hospice House.
