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.Whale Half Round Door mats A Massive Whale The Master of The Oceans Themed Around Planet Nature Bathroom Mat H 63 xD 94.5 Dark bluee Black and orange

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.Summer Half Round Door mats Print Hello Summer Aloha with a Pineapple Summertime Tropic Exotic Warm Weather Bathroom Mat H 63 xD 94.5 Black White 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.

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.Retro Semicircular Cushion Fifties Sixties Inspired Composition of Abstract Shapes on Dark Dotted Background Entry Door Mat H 63 xD 94.5 Multicolor During Sen.
