Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 15, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Delinquent afraid of world says probation supervisor By MAUREEN JAMIESON Family Editor People tend to forget that a delinquent's bravado masks s very frightened child, accord ing to Terry Aman. "He's afraid because he can't handle the world around he said. Mr. Aman, supervisor ot the Juvenile Probation Services lor the Letb'bridgc branch o[ th.3 De- partment o[ Health and Social Development, said lhat "probab ly 90 per cent or more of juve- niles on probation are male." Initially, tlie police become involved with a child suspect- ed of a delinquent act, he said. "They charge the child, and at that point they send us the information at what particu- lar lime the court hearing will be and what the charge was. GUILT NOT ASSUMED "We don't have any contact until the court hearing. The major reason is if we become involved prior to the court, it would almost assume his he explained. "The police present the case in juvenile court. If the child admits said Mr. Aman, "the judge could call on the DSD for more information in order to make a fair disposal. "The strongest power of the court now is to make the child a temporary ward of the crown under the Juvenile Delinquents Act. Judges do not have the right to sentence to an institu- tion. the child Is given proba- t i o n or wardship, Mr. Aman said, "the court turns over the service to us. "Then we begin to become Involved with the very important with his family. PROTECTION OP SOCIETY "What we really have to as- sume in probation is society ex- pects be said. "For every crime commit- ted, there is a victim. "As probation officers we have to, at some point, talk about things like social con- trol." Mr. Aman emphasized that "the officer's main objective is to keep that child noi, on the >v calendar of local happeningi Women with a weight prob- lem are invited to visit Tops AB 100 group which meets at p.m. on Monday in the basement of St. Augustine's Church Hall. The Minus One Club will hold a family picnic on Sunday at Writing on Stone Park. Potluck lunch and supper. All interested in attending arc asked to meet at the civic centre at 11 a.m. street, but in his home in the community, with all the things that surround him, because Ihis is where eventually he is going to have to make his ad' justmcnt. "However there are times when cliildren simply become, I suppose, uncontrollable and have to be removed tem- porarily. "The institution is a last re- ho said, "and we're look- ing for specific tilings when we send a child to one. "There might be poor peer relationships; poor relation- ships with adults, including parents and figures of author- ity ers." like police and leach- 0 t Ji e r contributing factors could be "a poor family back- ground or lack of success ex- periences generally, or a com- bination." TEMPORARY MEASURE 'The institution first estab- lishes control we haven't been able to put on a he add- ed, but it "is a temporary thing, and doesn't help us at all, be- cause it is not really a real setting for a child. "He doesn't have his own friends, family or they don't exist for him there. "We want to get him back into his community as quickly as possible. "In an said Mr. Aman, "he can't function prop- erly, but he can leam some of those social modes that are ne- cessary for his proper function; but then he must be aided in carrying these things through when he returns to the commu- nity." When the child Is back in his home, "involvement is taken up again" by his probation officer. In Lcthbridge, we haven't !iad that many admissions to .he institution. We've had a lairly good success rate in keeping the children in the he claimed. "We have a fantastically in- .erested police force, and the judge (of juvenile court) is a very concerned man. "It's a wonderful thing that we have here." When a child is put on pa- role, said Mr. Aman, "it might be for an accumulation of of- fences. Tlu's power is with the court, not with us. "Some of the more usual things are a number of thefts of a more serious auto and enter- ing with wilful damage. "The probation order says a child must be on good behavior and must attend school. "There may be curfew or oth- er requests, but for the most part, the court lets the proba- tion officer handle it. "We demand the cliild be seen in his home. We want to see how he operates in his own social mi- he said. "We like to talk to the child after court with lu's parents tell him a little abo'it the probation order; to let him know will be around. And then we go and visit." FAMILY INVOLVEMENT "We want to get his trust and confidence." Mr. Aman said. "We go out and play pool with him, or anything else again, with the involvement of the family. The family is never left out. 'You can leam more about that child in the interaction in a pool hall than in a dozen visits to this office. One of the good things about being a probation officer is that the child is plastic. "We may not see much change in the problematic sit- uation, but antisocial behavior may he said. "It what difficult effect his to measure involvement has. It may not show up until five years later. "But sometimes we do see startling results or he may end up in an institution, "You just don't know. "There is a certain amount of risk but we have to be prepared to accept some risks."

When the patient has come that far, then I think many of us know that such in- terference is no longer thera- peutic, and may gratify our own needs." Dr. Ross, medical director ol the South Cook County Mental Health and Family Services Chicago Heights, 111., outlined five stages that most terminal- ly ill patients pass through, given enough time before death These range from initial shock and denial when they leam they are seriously ill, through anger, bargaining, and depression before the final stage of acceptance is reached.

Particularly important, she said, is the patient's confidence that, even with no more surgery or medical treatment possible his physician will continue to care for and slay with him until the end. Many physicians and other health professionals are uncom- fortable about dealing with dying patients, Dr. Ross said. "I think physicians have it much she said. "We are trained to heal, to cure, to prolong life, and I think many of us feel that a patient's death is like a defeat or a fail- ure." An important thing to under- stand, she noted, is that a pa- tient's reactions to various stages of dying are normal be- havior. We should be trying to tell our patients that it takes cour- age to cry. We should help them express (heir grief." Dr. Ross contended that sub- consciously people cannot con- ceive of their own death. There is a feeling that "I believe it shall happen to everybody in this room but not to me."

You'll get outvoted on every Issue, especially when it comes to choosing a movie. Last week, I had to do a lot of fancy talking and throw in a few bribes as well to persuade our brood to bypass a crummy epic at the drive-in. As a very special favor to me, they finally condescend- ed to come downtown and watch a children's movie. In my aged innocence, I had it figured that once they were there, they would enjoy it as much as I planned to. Was I off base! I loved the whole ball apprentice witch and her friends flying around the world on a brass bed the fishy dance hall scene the vacant armor of knights-of-old nobly rising up and banishing the "Great I hollered enthusiastically, as we squeezed out the door afterwards. "Moth-er! You're so said Son Two, anxious- ly looking around to see if any of his friends were within hearing distance. Son One put in his two cents' worth: "it's so-o-o muttered the family sophisticate. Sadly deflated, I comforted myself with the thought that it's natural for young folk to get dis- gustingly worldly-wise when they're fed a daily diet of supermen, spacemen and witchcraft on TV.
