Listed below are a series of seminars being offered by the CSC covering a number of issues related to school-age children. These seminars can be offered with a focus on parents or on the teachers and social workers within the school. Please contact the CSC with any questions.

ADD/ADHD: This presentation focuses on understanding symptoms and accommodating students with ADD/ADHD. Techniques, strategies and interventions dealing with students diagnosed are the focus so children can learn effectively and become well-adjusted members of the classroom.

Depression: this presentation will focus on early identification, intervention and prevention of depression in school-aged children. Teachers and other staff members are then educated on strategies and techniques that will enable students to function in the classroom more effectively.

CyberBullying: This seminar focuses on the latest trends of cyber bullying. This seminar uses the student’s everyday language and is taught on their level enabling them to see the harmful causes and effects of cyber bullying.

Organization Group: Many children have a real issue with getting organized and staying organized. This group focuses on how to get organized and stay there--throughout the entire school year. This group is not a quick fix, but an in depth look at why the student is disorganized and how to combat this issue.

Friendship Group: this group focuses on making and maintaining healthy and functional friendships.  Main focus is how to combat gossiping, bullying and how to solve issues both individually and in groups.
Bullying Group (also named "Girl Power" group): This group focuses on how to deal with being a victim of bully and what the factors are behind someone who bullies.  Real life problems, alternatives and solutions are examined and discussed.  Cyberbullying and Illinois State Laws dealing with bullying are examined.

Mediation is a process used to help people reach agreements. In this process, a neutral, trained mediator works with people to discuss all of the issues related to their conflict, to explore possible options for settlement, and to identify solutions that best meet the needs of each person involved.

As a community based organization that has been in existence for over 30 years, CSC has the experience and expertise to work with you and your employees in a professional, courteous, and confidential manner. We have two programs we offer local employers to assist their employees in two areas of great need, housing and clinical counseling.

Employer Assisted Housing (EAH)

Employer-assisted housing (EAH) has been established in Illinois as a successful model that helps working families with home purchase, the primary savings vehicle for most Americans. In a time of record foreclosure rates throughout our region, EAH is also a vehicle in foreclosure prevention. With outsourced counseling and education through a not-for-profit housing expert, Community Service Council of Northern Will County, employees are safeguarded against taking mortgages they cannot afford.

EAH has a long and growing track record in the Chicago metropolitan area and is a proven benefit for employers, employees and the surrounding community. It helps build stable workforces, reduces turnover, and even saves the employer money due to state matching funds and tax credits. When employees live in the communities in which they work, families thrive. Real estate revenues increase and communities improve.

Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is offered by The Community Service Council of Northern Will County to local employers to bridge the gap between conventional health insurance coverage and the greater needs of employees. Through the EAP an employer can offer their employees a service to cover needs in any of our Clinical counseling areas.
Through this program your employees and their dependents will receive counseling at a reduced rate with the first hour of clinical counseling at no charge. The cost to the employer is based on the number of employees.
