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).Mirror Wall Mount Mirror Waterproof Bathroom Mirror Border Mirror Bathroom Mirror Glass Silver Mirror Makeup Dressing Mirror Home Mirror HD (color Metallic, Size 60 45cm)

Fromm Reed has been working since about 2004 on the challenge of how to help people and communities heal from Adverse Childhood Experiences.

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.ZHAOYONGLI Stool Footstool shoes Bench Sofa Stool Change shoes Bench Wooden Stool Solid Wood Fashion Leather Creative Oval Home Multi-Function Stool Creative Solid Durable Long Lasting

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.Modern Minimalist Creative Bookshelf, Living Room, Bedroom, Study(Black,whrite) (color Black) 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.Metal Beds with Headboard and Footboard Mattress Foundation Metal Platform Slat Support Box Spring Replacement for Kids Adult Beds Black Queen Size

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.Solid Wood Barstools PU Upholstered Swivel Dining Chair with Hemp Rope Wooden Footrest for Counter, Kitchen and Home (White) 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, OLIWIER - Wooden Round Coffee Tablebut we decided that they impact our youth and communities so much that we embed resilience in all the work we do.”
