The old notion about professors living in an ivory tower is fading fast.

Recently, Fromm Reed took part as U.S. Senator Dick Durbin visited the Resilient Belmont Cragin group to discuss how it is using a strategy called Community Resilience to help residents cope with difficulties resulting from Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).Jiuqihome Nordic Style Chair Negotiate Chair Creative Solid Wood Coffee Chair Dining Chair Bar Stool (color Black, Size H75cm)
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, Bath Stool Bathroom Elderly Disabled Stainless Steel Anti-Skid seat Stool Bathing Stool Anti-Corrosion Anti-Sliphaving 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.

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.Towel Rack Copper Towel Rack Set Widened Thick Towel Rack Bathroom Hardware Pendant Set, pink gold, Single Bar Bathroom Towel Shelf (color Roll Holder)
That ran counter to folk wisdom to “pull yourself up by your bootstraps,” and it helped Community Psychologists re-calibrate their thinking to focus on community resilience.Alonza Series orange Plastic Chair with Chrome Base Working together, a community can “pull up its members” more effectively.
Last year, Fromm Reed and NLU colleague Judith Kent, Ph.D., began working with the Resilient Belmont Cragin group in a pairing that lets the academic research meet the real world of a Northwest-side Chicago neighborhood.Red Wine Shelf Wall-Mounted Wrought Iron Wine Rack Seven-Layer Vintage Old Shelf for Restaurant Bar Wall Decoration Belmont Cragin has seen its poverty rate double from 2000 to 2010 as people of modest means, including many immigrants, moved there to escape rising rents in gentrifying Logan Square and Humboldt Park.
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.LXLIGHTS Headboard Bedside Cushion Backrest Waist Pad Bed Wedge Soft Case Sofa Pillows, Easy to Install (color D, Size 150 58 10cm)
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.Millet Official Flagship Store 8H Applicable 1.5m1.8m Mattress Bed Dormitory economical high-Elastic Breathable mat 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, Wine Rack On The Wall Upside Down Red Glass Frame Household,B (color A, Size -)but we decided that they impact our youth and communities so much that we embed resilience in all the work we do.”
