A new seminar series led by Sally Herschman and focusing on providing therapeutic services to people age 0-18 years old. The series is clinically focused but that does NOT mean it is for clinicians only!  Explore all aspects of working with and treating clients, from engagement to termination, using a lens of consideration for trauma experiences, race, developmental disabilities, and presentation along the full gender and sexuality spectrum.  Supervisors and direct service staff are highly encouraged to attend.

People with Disabilities & Their Families

Sibshops offer brothers and sisters of children with a variety of special needs a place to meet other siblings in a relaxed, supportive, and recreational setting. They discuss their common joys and concerns, learn to handle sibling-specific “sticky situations” and have fun! For kids ages 6-12 years old.

FALL 2022 Sibshops

JCFS Chicago will be offering both virtual and in-person Sibshops this spring.  In-person Sibshops will have a limited number of spots and masking is required.  We will use outdoor spaces as weather permits.
