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).Kitchen Taps YIXINY SD-301 Washbasin Taps Zinc alloy Material Ceramic Valve, Washbasin Faucet

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, Durovin Bathrooms Stainless Steel Shower Head Silver Chrome Mirror Finish Rainfall Effect - 200 x 200 mm - Ultra Thin Design - Squarehaving 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.Contemporary Chrome Wall Mounted Soap Dishes zinc soap dish

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.ZJ The Kitchen redate Full Copper Mixed Water Basin Faucet

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.Modernsltbathroom Sink Basin Lever Mixer Tap Single-Hole Brass Cold-Hot Basin Faucet

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.KOHLER K-16244-BN Margaux single-function showerhead, Vibrant Brushed Nickel 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, Basin Faucetbathroom Faucet Bathroom Copper Faucet Washbasin Faucetbut we decided that they impact our youth and communities so much that we embed resilience in all the work we do.”
