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).90cm Thick Tatami Student Dormitory Mattress Single Mattress 0.9m Meters sub Foldable Mattress was Hard Floors

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, Allied Brass Prestige Skyline Collection 24 Inch Shower Door Towel Bar, P1000-41-SM-24-ABZhaving 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.Solid Wood Bar Chair Retro Back Bar Stool, High Foot, Home, Bar, Front Desk, Coffee Shop, Smooth Sitting Surface (color Dark color, Size 74 39.5)

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.Allied Brass Prestige Regal Collection 24 Inch Shower Door Towel Bar, PR-41-SM-24-PNI

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.European Retro Wall Hanging Porch Decorative Round Bathroom Mirror Makeup Dressing Mirror (color gold) (color gold)  Working together, a community can “pull up its members” more effectively.

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.Bar stool Solid Wood Bar Stool, Bar Stool with Backrest, Breathable and Wearable Cotton and Linen Material, with Backrest Chair XXT (color Black Wood, Size H61CM) 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.Bathroom mirror cabinets Wall Mirror Cabinet Bedroom Makeup Mirror Cabinet Space Aluminum Household Mirror Cabinet (color Brown, Size 50 70 12.5cm)

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.Cooper Classics Wall Mirror, 4578, Wood, Brown, 29 Diameter x 1 deep 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, LJFYXZ Dining Chairs Kitchen Chair High Back Large Sitting Surface Solid Wood Frame Strong Carrying Capacity 3 colors 51x47x103cm (color Brown)but we decided that they impact our youth and communities so much that we embed resilience in all the work we do.”
