Fromm Reed has been working since about 2004 on the challenge of how to help people and communities heal from Adverse Childhood Experiences. ACEs include traumas such as experiencing physical, emotional or sexual abuse as a child, the death of divorce of a parent, LXF Wall-mounted folding table Wood-Based Panels Wall-mounted Folding Table Dining Table Simple Modern Computer Desk Kitchen Balcony (color Black, Size 60 40cm)having a parent incarcerated or having a parent with substance abuse. ACEs actually change an individual’s brain chemistry and reduce their capacity to cope with stressors.

Anyone may take this quiz to learn how many ACEs they have, as well as the resilience quiz to see how much resilience they have to heal from ACEs.Traditional Twin Headboard in Walnut Finish

Research in Community Psychology showed community resilience–the feeling of knowing and being able to count on one’s neighbors and members of the community–is much more effective than individual resilience to help children and young people with ACEs do better in terms of mental health, physical health, school performance and healthy coping behaviors.Allied Brass DT-1 22-BKM Dottingham Collection Single Shelf, 22-Inch, Matte Black

As the psychologists work with the neighborhood leaders, the neighborhood leaders decided that so many residents have ACEs that they decided to embed resilience (the antidote to ACEs) in everything they do.Benzara BM160873 Modern Stool One White and Silver

Since Resilient Belmont Cragin formed in January 2018, it has worked with school, health, mental health, police and business leaders in the community to site a health clinic open to the entire community at Steinmetz High School, train police to not re-traumatize residents and mentor at-risk youth of high school age.Solid Wood bar stool, high stool, bar Chair, Simple Modern bar Cafe Business Hall bar stool During Sen.

”I think Suzette and Judy taught us that all the work we do is about resilience, but we never knew that because we’re not psychologists,” he said. “ACEs are seen as a psychological thing, XY Bar Chair Retro Wrought Iron White Fabric Dining Chair Stool Casual Decoration Home Clothing Store Backrest 008but we decided that they impact our youth and communities so much that we embed resilience in all the work we do.”
