dear friends >

Dear Friends of St. Aemilian-Lakeside: The year 2011 truly was a milestone year for us. We grew and changed to meet the needs of our community, and we are now fortunate enough to touch the lives of about 2,000 people each day. Our growth increased the scope and the quality of our services to children and families. Many individual achievements contributed to our overall success, lighting the way for even more future accomplishment. Many of these achievements were made possible with your support, and we’d like to share just a few highlights: On March 30, we held a symposium, “Creating a Trauma Informed Community,” which was attended by 720 guests and showcased presentations on the effects of trauma and trauma informed care by national experts, Doctors Robert Anda and Bruce Perry. Approximately 400 individuals have attended our trauma informed care training programs, which permits us to spread our knowledge of this critical subject more widely throughout our community. The Houston-based ChildTrauma Academy certified 37 of our staff members with Phase One Certification on the “neurosequential model of therapeutics.” This innovative approach assesses a child’s functioning and produces a brain map that identifies the child’s strengths and deficiencies and recommends interventions to create positive change.

The Bureau of Milwaukee Child Welfare was revamped, and we now provide half of the foster care services for Milwaukee County, and ongoing case management, intensive in-home services and adoption services. We hired more than 70 new staff to meet the increasing needs of our foster care, family preservation and family interaction services. We were re-accredited by the Council on Accreditation (COA), an independent not-forprofit international accreditor of communitybased behavioral health care and human service organizations. We have been accredited since 1987, and we became one of a very few organizations nationally and the first in Milwaukee to receive accreditation for child welfare work through ongoing case management and safety services. Ann Leinfelder Grove, our vice president for Strategy and Innovation, was appointed by Gov. Scott Walker to serve for three years on the Council on Mental Health, which advises the Wisconsin Department of Health Services. She also was named to the Healthy Wisconsin Leadership Institute, a continuing education and training program supported by the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health and the Medical College of Wisconsin. Her work focuses on the importance of creating a traumainformed community and a much wider awareness of this important issue.

We are proud of our success and grateful for your interest and support. Please take satisfaction in each of our accomplishments, as we consider each of you to be part of our team. We look forward to the coming year and our opportunity to work with you to make a difference in our community.


Teri Zywicki, President and CEO

> In May, children and young adults served by our Residential Treatment, Family Preservation and Independent Living Services programs showcased performing and visual arts they created with students from Homestead High School as part of a cooperative project called Project 3mpower. The project hopes to change the way the public understands and responds to the needs of foster youth. The name 3mpower comes from the goal of empowering three populations: foster and non-foster kids and the public. > A very successful first-ever Reunification Day was held at Milwaukee County Children’s Court on June 17, honoring families who have regained custody of their children. It was hosted by the Bureau of Milwaukee Child Welfare, the Children’s Court judiciary, the county District Attorney’s Office, as well as St. Aemilian-Lakeside, Integrated Family Services and Children’s Service Society of Wisconsin. > The Family Services department was created as an outgrowth and expansion of the trailblazing work started by our Family Preservation team. The department bolsters the work of Integrated Family Services by providing clinical and supportive services to families. The department now includes the Family Preservation, Caregiver Support and Kinship Stabilization, and Family Interaction programs, as well as Clinical Services.

Subsidiaries > In May, boys from Residential Treatment participated in a culminating show put on by Express Yourself Milwaukee that was supported in part by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board, with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts. Pulse 2011 included at-risk youth from a number of area organizations taking part in performances that included giant puppets, dancing, singing, drumming and skits. As an additional form of art therapy, residential boys created three large murals to hang at Integrated Family Services under the guidance of Albin Erhart, a professional artist who is the adoptive father of a young man who was served by St. Aemilian-Lakeside. > Over the summer, the three residential units engaged in a competition to see who could have the most fun. Counselors were provided with a list of 100 activities and digital cameras to record outings, which were aimed at promoting cooperation and relationships as well as giving the boys the opportunity to experience new things. > The Treatment Foster Care program that St. AemilianLakeside operates in Racine was reviewed by the Racine County Human Services Department and received the best score an agency has achieved on a site review. The review looked at operational, fiscal and program management, service/treatment documentation and compliance with contracted outcomes. The final score was 99 out of 102 possible points, for a 97% overall.

> Linda Cole, program coordinator at Friendships Unlimited and Spring City Corner Clubhouse, received a Mental Health Professional of the Year Award from the National Alliance on Mental Illness of Waukesha. The award recognizes outstanding achievement serving others whose lives have been touched by mental illness. > Elizabeth (Betsy) Cocos, a Family Services therapist, received a 2011 Community Partner of the Year award from Mental Health America of Wisconsin. The award recognized her “outstanding dedication, commitment and service in the field of mental health.” > Foster Care held a “Winter Wonderland” open house in December to highlight services and recruit more foster parents. About 65 people attended and the event resulted in several foster parent applications. > Sara Daniel, School Based Services coordinator, co-authored the Department of Public Instruction toolkit for Creating Trauma Sensitive Schools and completed a web cast as a counterpart of this toolkit. She also provided training on trauma sensitive schools at numerous venues across the state.

Integrated Family Services (IFS) > In a quality review conducted by the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families, IFS achieved several scores of 100%, including in the areas of assessment and understanding of safety; resource support for children, parents and substitute care givers, and team functioning. > All supervisory staff at Integrated Family Services completed 40 hours of mediation training through the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. The sessions were aimed at helping staff better identify clients’ needs, clarify concerns and help with conflict resolution. > IFS restructured its leadership team to attract top talent to meet current and future needs. The agency also moved to a new location, at Summit Place in West Allis, for increased efficiency, cost savings and better integration of care. Capitol West Academy (CWA) > Capitol West Academy was chosen by the Wisconsin Character Education Partnership to receive a Promising Practice award for its quality character education program. This is the second year in a row CWA has won this award. > CWA was awarded a four-year contract renewal with the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, which charters the school.

> The school achieved 100% attendance for parent/ teacher conferences in fall and spring, and average daily attendance for 2010-2011 school year was 96.1%.


Certification gained in neurosequential model of therapeutics In 2011, St. Aemilian-Lakeside became certified in what is known as the neurosequential model of therapeutics, or NMT. The creation of Dr. Bruce Perry,* a world renowned expert in how trauma such as abuse and neglect affects the brain and behavior, NMT is a biologically informed way to assess when trauma occurred in a child’s development and create ways to mitigate its effects. Assessment is critical, because the brain develops in stages, and knowing at what point in a child’s life trauma or maltreatment occurred – even in utero – can help determine what part of the brain was affected. Buffering factors, such as a caring person in the child’s life, also are considered. From this information, a brain map is created that details the child’s strengths and weaknesses and suggests therapies that are individualized to the child’s needs. The mapping aims to help children in their social, emotional, cognitive and physical functioning. Repetitive, rhythmic activities play a key role in soothing a brain that has experienced trauma. Quality, nurturing relationships and ongoing educational and enrichment activities also are critical to promoting healing.


A total of 37 clinicians at St. Aemilian-Lakeside participated in the certification training and are actively employing NMT with the children in their care, with many positive results. *Dr. Bruce Perry, M.D., Ph.D., is the Senior Fellow of the ChildTrauma Academy, a not-for-prof it organization based in Houston ( and an adjunct professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Northwestern University School of Medicine in Chicago. Over the last 30 years, Dr. Perry has been an active teacher, clinician and researcher in children’s mental health and the neurosciences, holding a variety of academic positions.

Big, lovable dog helps bring compassionate healing to troubled boys in residential unit 8

Bentley, a 2-year-old Bernese Mountain Dog, yielded remarkable results in his work with emotionally disturbed boys in our Residential Treatment Program. With compassionate canine attention, Bentley helped them open up and move toward healing. The animal-assisted therapy program started last year with Bogey, a 9-yearold golden retriever, working with boys ages 7-11. Then Bentley completed a multi-week session working with children ages 11-14. His owner/handler, Cheryl Pabich, is a volunteer with Health Heelers, an animal-assisted therapy program run by Laura Hey. In an initial session, Laura shared Bentley’s “resume” with the kids,

including his “scariest experience.” The dog was born in Canada, so the experience entailed: “Leaving mom, dad, brothers and sisters, meeting new step-parents and flying on a plane in a small pet carrier. (I was only 7 weeks old!) When I got to my new home, I had three step-brothers that I needed to meet and get along with. I needed to respect that I came into their home.” The boys, many of whom can relate to being uprooted and having to adjust to unfamiliar surroundings in a new home, then took turns being invited into Bentley’s “personal space” to share their own scariest experience or memory. “You could have heard a pin drop,” therapist Kathleen Tompkins said. “The boys were incredibly respectful and really listened to each story.” Some of the stories had never been shared before, “even after months of work. … The boys seemed to realize how important the sharing was.”

“He’s very sensitive,” Cheryl said. “He will lick the boys’ heads and move to comfort them when they tell their stories.” Later, two of the boys talked about being mean to another boy in the group and said they wanted to tell him they were sorry. Two other boys brought up the Bentley experience in their familytherapy sessions, Kathleen said, telling their parents they don’t feel so alone or like they were the only one after hearing the other boys’ traumatic stories. “It is just so safe to tell their families about Bentley, show off his pictures, and talk about him,” Kathleen said. “I’m sold on this therapy dog.”

Trauma informed care turns life around for suicidal girl Jenni is a 16-year-old whose life for 10 years was a nightmare. Her father got custody of her at age 4 and abused her sexually until she was 14. He would give her ultimatums: perform sexual favors or not be allowed to do almost anything she wanted. When she disclosed the abuse, her father was arrested and sentenced to 19 years in prison. Jenni bounced among various family members, but her past trauma took its toll. She experienced four inpatient stays at a psychiatric hospital, where a doctor characterized her as the most suicidal child he had ever met. She had horrible nightmares and talked several times a day of doing specific things such as stepping in front of a semi to kill herself and end her pain. Later she was placed in a residential treatment facility. In June of 2010, Integrated Family Services (IFS) got involved, and through the introduction of trauma informed care, Jenni’s life began to turn around.

Two assessments in the neurosequential model of therapeutics (NMT) (see page 6) were done to determine when Jenni’s trauma occurred, what it consisted of, and what interventions were likely to help. It was eye-opening, said Tracy Clark, Ongoing Case Management supervisor at IFS.

Other interventions at the residential facility included swinging, journaling, playing the guitar, and Zumba.

“We can look at what she’s been through and know that’s obviously why she has problems,” Bob said.

“She’s a very sensitive girl, and she just wants to be like a normal teenager,” Kimberly said.

The NMT assessments involved Jenni’s maternal aunt, Susan, with whom she now lives. Her biological mother and other family members also were interviewed. Other participants included her IFS case manager, Kimberly Moran, and her residential facility therapist.

Her path to normalcy was enhanced by her very supportive aunt, who Jenni went to live with when she was released from the residential facility, along with her aunt’s significant other, Bob. They both have kids, but they also took in Jenni’s half-brother, creating a lively blended family.

Susan and Bob are dedicated to helping Jenni achieve the life they say she deserves, and Jenni has made tremendous progress. She is doing well in school. She rides her bike to calm herself; she loves sports and takes ballet classes. She dreams of studying dance at the Juilliard School.

Some first steps to address her trauma included giving her a nightlight, controlling smells that triggered fears, leaving her door open at night, and adding a lock to allow her to control who would enter.

Susan and Bob attended trainings in trauma informed care, and “it gave us some good insight,” Susan said.

“It was a big thing just figuring out how to engage her,” Tracy said. “She had deeply held memories of what her father made her do, and she had no ability to self-regulate.”

The emphasis on patterned, rhythmic movements and using music to soothe a child “put a framework, a name to it, and it helps with all of the kids,” Bob said. They said the trainings gave them more patience and a realization that Jenni’s acting out was not something they provoked.

“We said we will just pull up in our RV and see her!” Susan said. “She is now talking about goals, and she has every opportunity to do whatever she wants to do.” “Trauma informed care absolutely has made a huge impact on how comfortable I feel and how I feel prepared to care for her,” Bob said. “Trauma informed care opens the door to understanding. It’s nothing short of a miracle.”


Wilton Johnson casually talks about living in a drug house for two years while he was in high school. He managed to graduate, but no one knew about the lie he was living.

Young man goes from homelessness to having a real future

The worst part, he says, was having little to eat, basically living on Raman noodles he could buy when his cousin, who owned the place, gave him a couple dollars here and there. But the experience, which followed being thrown out of his house and six years in foster care, took its toll. A sister took him in, but that didn’t work out either. Wil felt like she was treating him as a son while she had one of her own to care for. He felt like a burden and became seriously depressed. Wil ended up in the county mental health complex and later in a county run group home. While there, his mother visited him. “She said, ‘You belong here,’ and she walked out and left,” Wil said. “It was hard; I felt like something’s gotta’ happen with my life.”


After landing in a homeless shelter, a social worker referred him to the Supportive Permanent Housing program at St. Aemilian-Lakeside. Things finally began to happen. Wil has been in the program for more than a year now. He lives in a one-bedroom apartment, with furnishings and food supplied by St. Aemilian-Lakeside. The agency has set him up with a therapist, and he is visited weekly by a Supportive Permanent Housing case manager.

He attends MATC full time and wants to become a teacher, with an ultimate goal of becoming a dean, “when I’m about 60 years old!” he said with a laugh. Wil laughs a lot now, thanks in large part to his case manager and the life’s path he is being helped to follow. “She’s the difference between being here and being homeless,” he said. Staff in the program characterize Wil as a young man who is very curious and engaged. The Supportive Permanent Housing program serves nine formerly homeless young adults 18-24 who, like Wil, have mental health concerns on some level and need support to transition to adulthood and become productive members of the community in which we all live. The program is one of three St. Aemilian-Lakeside started within the last four years that provide independent living services to former foster youth. “This is a population that really needs our help,” said Jane Ottow, Independent Living Services supervisor. “Without it, many end up on the streets, preyed upon, or ultimately in the criminal justice system.” There’s a lot of work that goes into keeping Wil and the other young people in the program safe, happy and focused on their future. For Wil, the best thing is not thinking too much about his past. “It’s too scary to think about what life would have been like without St. Aemilian’s.”

When John acted up in school, they thought he was being belligerent, a kid who hung around with “bad influences” and who was on the verge of becoming a gang member. When he got angry, he’d cuss, break things, and become verbally and physically abusive. He brought a fake gun to school once and would menacingly wander the halls. He was kicked out of school twice. When Wraparound Milwaukee got involved, it was determined that John really was hurt by the addiction and mental health concerns his mother battled for years and was scared to death he would end up being pulled away from her again. He suffered from trauma as the result of his past and had severe anger and anxiety. With input from multiple players, John was able to understand his feelings, straighten himself out, and the family is making progress toward a productive future. “A lot of kids with problems like his don’t have such success, or do but end up coming back into the system,” said David Petro, John’s Wraparound case manager. “He really turned it around.” Wraparound is a managed care system that seeks to keep children and families with mental health concerns together in the home as much as possible. Children served are involved in the juvenile justice or foster care system, and a court orders the services. Care coordinators such as David do care planning that includes the family’s vision of how they would like things to be, barriers to achieving the vision, strategies needed for success

and measurable benchmarks. They bring together multiple community resources to achieve the goals. John had been the victim of neglect; his father was in jail and his mother was unable to provide food for him. He was removed from the home at age 10 and spent 14 months in a foster home. After a month in residential treatment at St. Aemilian-Lakeside, he was returned to his mother. But after 13 months, she relapsed into drugs and he was returned to foster care. When Wraparound got involved, after about six months John and his mother were reunited. What was the secret to the success? With the help of a family therapist, medication, anger management services, a special education program and academic support at school, and a really great mentor who got John into skateboarding as a good physical activity and an alternative to getting into trouble, the boy started opening up, David said. “He started talking about how scared he was, how his anger came from being afraid that his mother would relapse and ‘abandon’ him again. He really was upset with his mom for not knowing what was happening. “His mom got it together when she saw that, and then they both stared doing a lot better.” She went into drug and alcohol counseling, and mom and son worked together on the issue of fear. His mother invited John’s friends into their house and got to know and like them. The family now includes a significant other for mom, with whom she has a baby daughter who is much loved by the family. John

Learning fear was cause of ‘bad’ behavior opens door to better life for boy and family likes the man, who has a well-paying job that provides for the family and offers a critical element of family stability. Because of the family’s success, they were able to leave Wraparound. John is now doing well at school and at home. “And he is with his mom,” David said. “And that gives him a positive outlook. It’s really important to him.”
