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).PIGE European Shower Set Black Square Tube Thermostatic Shower Copper Faucet golden Shower Bidet Nozzle
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, Plush fabirc Sofa Cover 1 2 3 4 Seater Thick Slipcover Couch sofacovers Stretch Elastic Cheap Sofa Covers Towel wrap Covering Purple, 2 seat 145-185cmhaving 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.GAOLI Bathroom Sink faucets Contemporary Modern rife with Ceramic alve Two Handles Three Holes for Ti-PD Bathtub Faucet Bathroom Sink

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.KOHLER K-16250-CP Margaux 18-Inch Towel Bar, Polished Chrome 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.Allied Brass Remi Collection 16 Inch Glass Vanity Shelf with Beveled Edges, RM-1-16-CA
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.Red Wine Shelf Wine Rack European Stainless Steel Desktop Wine Glass Holder Household Items 6 12 Bottles (Size Single Layer) (Size Double Layer) 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, Y-aime.Modern Copper Kitchen Faucet Can be redated Hot and Cold Mixed Water Sink Tapbut we decided that they impact our youth and communities so much that we embed resilience in all the work we do.”
