"In many cases, it's just as well, because it is at Ibis point of crisis tbat they can be best he said. "Wlicn these people call, they need help right now. We try to help them calm down, and generally insist that the call be followed up with a counselling appointment." staff of Mr. Mont, .loan Puckctt, are!

Ali the stall has a. minimun of four yours of university, which is continually added to through in-service training- seminars, conferences and collateral sessions. The staff is trained to be "senfjlivc, nol sympathetic1' to the client. The first step is (fie development of a warm, accepting atmosphere and the establishment of trust. "The counsellor is there to help develop insight in the client, to help him analyze wiiy things have happened and lo help establish certain mutual goals. This usually takes several laid Mr. Mont. "We do some counselling for alcoholism, drug .situa- tions and budgeting prob- lems. More couples get mixed up because of money." Marriage counselling i.s frequent: "Most of the prob- lems, we find, are caused by the inability of people lo com- municate their gut-level feel- ings to the person who means the most to them." "We sometimes come _ up against someone who requires un individual personality ad- justment, or with a character disorder. li u t practically everything is family-oriented. "It is extremely important to involve the family in the counselling. Wo rarely at- tempt lo work iri isolation with the Mr. 'Mont said. "Self-awareness is fine to a certain extent, but in the end, the client is going hack into the same or a worse sit- uation. "It is often necessary to develop the person's ego. He must be made aware of his creativity, his self-worth, and inarlc lo feel better emotion- ally, before his problems can solved." Ths department works closely with the other assis- tance agencies in the city for referrals and consultations. Counselling is done both in the office and in the home, wilh fees running on a slid- ing scale according to the client's ability to pay. l-'ces vary upwards from 51 per session. Telephone number for ap- pointments is The Ilomemaker Depart- ment of I he Lolhbridgc Fam- ily Service provides emer- gency care for children, who for various reasons temporar- ily lack parental protection. The service was formulated to make it possible for chil- dren to remain in their homos and participate in family life during a situation where this would otherwise be impossi- ble. The department, under su- pervisor Hilda McClenaghan, has six full-lime homcmakers and several part time work- ers. All homcmakers are mat- ure women selected for their practical experience, ability and interest in people. Perio- dic training courses arc as- signed. At the top of the priority list for homemaker care is parental emotional illness, but care will provided in cases of desertion, hospitali- zation, home illness, mater- nity, compassion (death in the training, and geriatric service. The service is not available where there are communica- ble diseases, and the length of stay docs not exceed three juonttis. The hours arc predeter- mined between the client and the supervisor, and the homemaker will live in, if necessary. Fees are also determined in the first interview, with the charge ranging from to daily, depending on the hours the number of children and the family's abi- lity to pay. The fees are paid lo the agency, and the homemaker is not aware of what is charg- ed. She is paid a monthly re- tainer by the agency. The homemaker will follow usual hovisehold routines as closely as possible, antl is re- sponsible for general light housework. All placements begin with a phone call appointment for an inlerview made to 327-5724. The Guidance Clin- ic attempts to assist children with specific learning or be- havioral problems on an out- patient, clinic-visit basis. The clinic offers a team ap- proach to any type of prob- lem, says Dan Chipman, its director" On the slaff regular- ly are Iwo psychologists, one part-time psychologist, three social workers, and one psy- chialrist. The clinic operation is a preventive program, with early diagnosis and early treatment the principle follow- ed. Heading problems in chil- dren are most prevalent clin- ic challenges, but Mr. Chip- man said the University of Jxjthbridgc faculty of educa- tion proves "a great help" in overcoming specific learn- ing disabilities. Social antl emotional prob- lems are handled, with such behavioral problems often caused by an insecure fam- ily relationship, said Mr. Chipman. "Play therapy and group therapy are the most common methods of discerning prob- lems. "If children arc not.doing well at school, it's our job to find out why." Most of the children are re- ferred by school principals, superintendents, public health nurses, private physicians and the Alberta department of health and social develop- ment. The clinic assesses menial- ly retarded patients, diag- noses minor psychiatric prob- lems ami does vocational as- sessments lo determine inter- est and ability. The clinic provides a follow- up program of clinic visits lo patients in the psychiatric ward of the U-tbhridgc Muni- cipal Hospital. The program involves counselling and sometimes testing. Social workers work with the fami- lies and the individual pa- tients, in preparing them return home. Mild emotional problems ol adults and families are treat- ed, with self referral the most common in these cases, said Mi'. Chipman. "The type of problems are mostly mari- tal." The Medicine Hat clinic is under the direction of the centre, and trav- elling clinics are provided to Vulcan, Crou'snest Pass, Pin- cher Creek and to any other centre "as the need re- quires." Office phone number is 323- 9281. Olden days Starting in 1917 Lclhbridge, like the rest of Alberta, enjoy- ed the booms years that came with U.S. prohibition. Minia- ture breweries sprang up.

For public housing units, a laximum is set on the rent a amily has to pay. The range between 14 and 25 per cent the family income.

Shortly after the main street confrontation, Mr. Mcllroy called the town council togeth- er for a meeting over the qucs- ion and to provide answers for i Herald reporter-photographer cam on the scene.

To pay for the housing, the provincial government would 9fl per cent of the con- struction and land costs from the federal government and provide tlie remaining 10 per cent itself. Since revenue from rents Is usually lower than Ihc monthly operation cost? in these devel- opments, a subsidy arrange- mcnf is provided with the threfl levels of government sharing the cost. The city would absorb a maximum of 10 per cent ol the costs. Families which could qualify for public housing are asited to contact the community services about 328-2341.
