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, ZHILIAN& Floor-Standing Hangers Simple and Stylish Home Entrance Metal Wrought Iron Multi-Function Clothes Bag Storage Rack Display Standhaving 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.DYR Solid Wood Coat Hanger 10 Structure Solid and Resistant Floor Hangers 183 50 cm (color White)

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.Jennifer Taylor Home Hand-Tufted Upholstered Bed with Hand Applied Nail Heads, King, Star White

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.JZX Shelf, Solid Wood Floor Storage Rack, Spice Rack 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.End Table, End Table Sofa Side Coffee Storage Trolly Table for Home,Living Room,Office,26 25 60 cm (color Black)

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.QIANGDA Coat Rack Floor Standing Bamboo Trousers shoes Rack Multifunction Easy Assemble for Home, 3 Sizes (Size 80x37x175cm) 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, [email protected] Iron Wine Rack Hanging Red Wine Cup Holder Hanging Upside Down Glass Holder Creative Home Bar Kitchen Living Room Hanging Storage Racks (color White, Size 80 25cm)but we decided that they impact our youth and communities so much that we embed resilience in all the work we do.”
