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).Kid's Treasure Chest with Replica Pirate Coins

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, Eviva EVAC20BN Toweller Towel bar (Brushed Nickel) Bathroom Accessories Combinationhaving 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.Wooden Chair Outdoor Furniture Foldable Adirondack Chair-White

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.LS Shelf PP White Grey Cutlery Chopsticks Tableware Kitchen Creative Multi-Function Drain Rack Size 22.5 18.5 11.5cm Modern Retro Style Fashion Trend Rack (color White)

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.Geo Crafts Vinyl Back I Like It Dirty Doormat 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.SONGMICS Set of 2, Height Adjustable Bar Chairs in Synthetic Leather, 360° Swivel Kitchen Stool with Backrest and Footrest, Black LJB93BUK, Chrome

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.Semicircular Decorative Rug Living Room, Creative Floor mat Water Absorption Carpet Soft Footcloth Rug for Bathroom Bedroom Livingroom-A 50x80cm(20x31inch) 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, 1Pc Coffee, 42x110cm Stripe Bath Long Mat Bathroom Living Room Non Slip Suction Bath Shower Antiskid Pad 42x110cmbut we decided that they impact our youth and communities so much that we embed resilience in all the work we do.”
