A Note from Kathy Schoff, President/CEO

Our hearts are hurting with our Black community and with all people of color as they yet again face ongoing acts of racism and social injustice designed to harm and further erode trust. 

FSM is committed to holding ourselves and others accountable as we face the challenge to help drive real change. In doing so we’ll explore our own policies, procedures and actions and will look at how to support our employees, clients, and be better stewards of our community.  

Systemic racism must end, we all must do our part. We stand against racism and injustice.

The mission and vision of the NAACP: 

“The mission of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) is to secure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights in order to eliminate race-based discrimination and ensure the health and well-being of all persons.”

“The vision of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is to ensure a society in which all individuals have equal rights without discrimination based on race.”

Take Some Time for Yourself and Your Family.

Family Service Madison announces the addition of two evidence-based trauma treatment programs!

Trauma Informed-Child Parent Psychotherapy (TI-CPP) is a family-based therapeutic program helping children who are experiencing emotional, behavioral, attachment, and/or mental health problems due to physical or psychological trauma.

Therapeutic sessions include the child and parent or primary caregiver. The treatment goal is to support and strengthen the relationship between a child who has experienced trauma, and his or her caregiver, and improving the child’s emotional, behavioral, social and cognitive functioning. The program serves children ages zero to five.

Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-C BT) is a treatment approach addressing the unique needs of children with PTSD symptoms, depression, behavior problems, and other difficulties related to traumatic life experiences. The program provides individual sessions for the child and for the parent or caregiver, as well as joint parent-child sessions. The program serves children ages six to seventeen.

To make a referral or for more information call (608) 316-1180.
