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).DH JINGZI - Makeup Mirror Mirror Wall-Mounted Frame Metal Hook Bathroom Waterproof Ultra-Clear Simple Modern PVC Plastic, 8 colors 2 Size (color 8MM Thickness Green, Size 60x80cm)

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, European Minimalist Style, Black Wood, Solid Wood, redating Seat Cushion Bar Front Desk European Chair Wooden Bench Vintage Bar Stools Height 74 cm (color D)having 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 Ladder, Folding Wooden Ladder Portable Folding Chair Ladder Dual-use Wooden Step Ladder Household Kitchen Ascending Bench Living Room Stool (color Brown, Size 42 48 64cm)

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.Frigidaire Factory Oem 5303918455 For 5304457964 Adjustable Hinge Kit

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.Recliners Lazy Couch Balcony Bay Window Folding Sofa Recliner Single Sofa Bed Multi-Function Recliner Office Nap Lounge Chair Weight 120KG Gift for Family (color Pink, Size 53 55.5 55.5cm)  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.Oriental Furniture Simple Best Price Quality Room Divider, 67-Inch, 5.5-Feet Wood Frame and Woven Bamboo Matchstick Folding Floor Screen, 3 Panel Burnt Brown 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.WENZHE Upholstered Fabric Headboard Bedside Cushion Pads Cover Bed Wedges Backrest Waist Pad Double Bed Soft Case Pillow Home Sofa Bedroom Large Back Bed Cover Multifunction Washable, With Headboard Without Headboard, 3 colors, 7 Sizes, 14 Options ( Col

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.Deco 79 Teak Wood Square Cut Log Stool, 18 by 18-Inch 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, Solid Wood Dining Chair Modern Simple Single Room Study Chair Fashionable Desk Backrest Chair Computer Chairbut we decided that they impact our youth and communities so much that we embed resilience in all the work we do.”
