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

Suzette Fromm Reed, Ph.D., is bringing her expertise in Community Psychology to a forward-thinking Chicago neighborhood organization called the Resilient Belmont Cragin Community Collaborative.

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).Luxor WT16BU bluee 16 Two Shelves A V Cart With Putty Legs

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, 8-Inch LED Lighted Wall Mount Makeup Mirror with 3X Magnification, Copper Chrome Plating,360 Degree redation,HD Mirrorhaving 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.ZHIRONG Flower Stand Northern Europe Square Iron Art Line High Foot Rack Indoor Outdoor Floor-Standing Potted Plants Display Stand Balcony Living Room Flower Pot Rack 25 60cm 29 80cm

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.ZHIRONG Bamboo Coat and Hat Rack 8 Hooks Coat Stand Clothes Rack for Garage Foyer Bedroom Office 183 39cm (color A)

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.Barstools Chair with PU Seat Footrest Backrest Adjustable Swivel Gas Lift, Height 60-80cm for Kitchen Breakfast Restaurant Bar Counter Bar Stool Chromed Plate Base Max.

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.WENZHE Upholstered Fabric Upholstered Headboard Bedside Cushion Wedges Backrest Waist Pad Home Pillow Cloth Soft Case Washable Simple, 8 colors (color C, Size 150X58X10cm) 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.25 in. Dia. Round Accent Table 542620

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.Modern Minimalist Home Creative Geometry Hollow backrest Dining chair Nordic Adult Desk chair Cafe Table and chair (Size 55 55 81cm).

”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, Double Layer Multifunction Coat Rack Floor Hanger Bamboo Group Device Rack Movable Hangerbut we decided that they impact our youth and communities so much that we embed resilience in all the work we do.”
