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).RFJJAL Wall-Mounted Folding Table,Dining Table Drop Leaf Computer Desk Note Desk Wall Table, Multi-Size Optional, White (Size 70 30cm)

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, 23 1 2\ Tall Caribbean's Pirate Skull Table with Holderhaving 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.CAIJUN Bar Stool Multipurpose Metal Frame with Backrest Leisure Non-Slip Whole Outfit Simple, 4 colors, 2 Styles Dual-use (color blueee, Size B)

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.Dining Chair Simple and Modern Leather Armchair Lounge Chair Lazy Single Sofa Chair Comfortable Sedentary Suitable for Restaurants Offices counters Families cafes Restaurant (color Pink)

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.Jiffylite Self-Seal Mailer, Contemporary Seam, 6 x 10, golden Brown 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.Hawthorne Collections X-Back Dining Chair in Desert Tan (Set of 2)

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.FLYSXP Bathroom Mirror Solid Wood Wide Vanity Mirror Sink Wall Mount Easy to Install Nordic Waterproof Anti-Corrosion Wall Mirror (color Brown, Size 50X50cm) 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, AO Umbrella Stand Multifunctional Floor Fashion Simple Umbrella Stand Hanger shoes Rack Reinforcement 186 85 15 15cmbut we decided that they impact our youth and communities so much that we embed resilience in all the work we do.”
