  • Alumna uses child development knowledge to help create safe toys - Erikson Institute
    product and how to mitigate them before the item ever makes it into the hands of a child From childcare to a unique role Rust had always been drawn to working with children spending seven years working in licensed home daycare But after graduating from DePaul University with a degree in psychology she was unsure of what to do next I really loved working with kids and wanted a better understanding of child development she says My boss at the time was very familiar with Erikson and knew it was the cream of the crop She encouraged me to apply Two years later and filled with the child development knowledge she had been seeking Rust began to prepare for graduation from Erikson However she still didn t know what career path she wanted to pursue I had been checking the Erikson job board on a regular basis and one day saw this post that caught my attention as it was so unique she says The job a research scientist at Intertek combined several of her interests working with customers using child development knowledge research and hands on work with children Rust immediately applied and started two days after graduation Evaluating toy safety At Intertek s Research and Observation Center in Oak Brook Illinois Rust and other research scientists observed how diverse groups of children and their caregivers responded to toys before Intertek s customers invested in producing or distributing them We would structure the environment in different ways to observe how children were using and interacting with items and we worked with caregivers to try to understand how they viewed an item Rust says Caregivers were asked to provide feedback such as what age range they thought was appropriate for the toy what they liked about the toy and whether or not they thought it was safe In addition to observing Rust often made presentations to customers on a range of child development topics such as the developmental sequence of fine and gross motor skills in young children Rust also shared her child development knowledge with Intertek safety consultants discussing with her colleagues for example how children ages birth to three explore objects in various ways such as mouthing With this knowledge the consultants would then look at the shape and size of a product to ensure that it would not cause any severe injury or fatality We have a lot of data that unfortunately comes from past injuries and fatalities with related products By using this information we have an understanding of what types of products will pose various hazards such as airway obstruction based on the overall size and shape of the product Rust says Sometimes we recommend that the design should change to prevent this Other times we are confident that the item would not present a real hazard and therefore not result in an injury or fatality Hands on to digital After two years as a research scientist Rust became a safety consultant and moved to

  • Alumna follows the data to serve children and families - Erikson Institute
    Project Match s base in Cabrini Green Herr sought to understand the families of the students she had taught and find out what solutions might help stabilize their lives Three quarters of those served by Project Match were women and many had been on welfare their entire lives Herr initially thought that any employment was the answer We would drive them to prearranged interviews and track their jobs and hours If they left a job we d just keep going she says The initial findings were surprising and discouraging It wasn t getting a job that was a problem for the women It was keeping it At that point we could ve said Wow what a terrible program we ve been running Herr recalls But we weren t defensive We followed the data and started over At a crossroads Herr drew on the knowledge she gained at Erikson to help inform the next steps of the project A human development lens helps you understand why high school dropouts would resist going back to school or work settings where they had previously failed she says The continuous cycling in and out of jobs might be taking a toll on their fragile still forming identities as a potential workers Herr and her colleague Warrine Pace kept collecting more data and began to rework their model They built in the concept of multi year post employment support realizing that participants would need more help than just finding a first job They would need ongoing support to find and keep a second third and even fourth one Since then more than a decade of federal and state welfare to work research has shown overwhelmingly that post employment support is an effective approach An evolving conversation on welfare In 1996 everything changed President Bill Clinton signed into law a new welfare reform bill changing welfare as we knew it Herr says Now time mattered Recipients had five years to move from welfare to employment and they had to meet strict work requirements to remain eligible for their monthly check With the new pressures on welfare recipients Project Match asked what would happen if the welfare to work field were to broaden its recognition of what counted as a legitimate effort toward becoming self sufficient This led Herr to create the Incremental Ladder which became a symbol for the Project Match approach The ladder s top rungs were traditional activities of employment education and training broken down into smaller time commitments But the real innovation was the addition of lower rungs With the lower rungs people who were not ready for work or school would still have the opportunity to build achievements through their daily activities For instance a mother having trouble regularly getting her children to school on time would be expected to master those skills before moving up the ladder Not only would those skills benefit her children but the same competencies also were critical for workforce success The overarching principle of the ladder

  • Alumna journeys from Kenya to Erikson to make a difference - Erikson Institute
    school in the city With my M S W degree I had the sense that I was prepared to work with people in general but not with any age group specifically Kimondo says I didn t have the background to fully understand the social emotional and cognitive development of the students She first arrived at Erikson as a research assistant for Professor Robert Halpern who was the director of the doctoral program Through her work with him and with Aisha Ray senior vice president for academic affairs and dean of faculty Kimondo decided to apply to the doctoral program While at Erikson she learned that World Relief a nonprofit organization that provides humanitarian aid and resettlement assistance to people displaced by war needed English teachers who spoke the Kiswahili language and began to volunteer In 2007 the organization received a grant that allowed Kimondo to work in the Chicago Public Schools as a social worker with children and families from Liberia Sierra Leone Burundi Somalia and other countries Her work with the displaced families would become the subject of Kimondo s doctoral thesis Things fall apart In most countries there are many systems in place to help mothers social service agencies schools churches and extended families that support and reinforce what is taught by parents But when war or disaster arrives virtually all of these systems are torn apart Families are forced to leave not only their homes but also their culture and support systems in their community Since the 1980s Liberian families faced this displacement during two successive civil wars and political upheavals For her doctoral thesis Kimondo met with four Liberian refugee mothers who had been resettled in Illinois to explore their beliefs about childhood and how those beliefs might have changed after war She was particularly interested in the women s experiences of raising children in a refugee camp Refugee camps are usually located in very arid places in border towns that have little to no infrastructure Kimondo explains It often takes years to recreate any sort of cultural systems which will still be unlike those that the mother left behind I wanted to look at what it meant to raise a child where in essence there is nothing she continues In addition to being displaced mothers and children often arrive at the camps having experienced incredible trauma and loss which may include having seen their own family members killed Giving a voice Talking in depth with mothers who had been displaced by war proved to be eye opening for Kimondo even after her years of experience working with refugee families I was familiar with some of it but now I was talking to a mother telling me her own experience she says There are certain things that you hear about on TV or read in the paper but until someone tells you what happened to her you don t truly understand You hear about a refugee camp or even see photographs of a child dying but
