By GEORGE STEPHENSON Herald Staff Writer Lethbridge is in the midst of developing social problems which how plague large urban centres, says Dr. Christopher Ross, co-ordinator of the Lethbridge Centre for Per- sonal and Community Development. The city is in transition from a large town to a city and these problems are developing now. There is no recognition of social forces here, the city cannot point to the past to see where the problems have come from, he adds. "Lethbridge has the poten- tial for constructive growth or potential for disintegration. Construction growth means being a part of the change with a feeling of responsibility in-the direction of change." The centre, formerly the Lethbridge Family Service, hopes to alleviate some of the problems at their primary level through a recently im- plemented program. Since the 1960's there has been an emphasis on com- munity action, with people within the community taking care of themselves and finding ansers to their own problems. The centre has, through the help of a Student Temporary Employment Program grant, collected data and used the in- formation to determine areas of the city where help is most needed. Criteria used in finding "target areas and groups" includes high concentration areas of preschoolers, un- employment, social assistance, alcoholism and intervention in family dis- putes, community co- ordinator Peter O'Donnell ex- plains. Counsellors from the centre will go into the problem areas and talk to community members and find out what they see as their major problems and give them the skills to get solutions themselves, Mr. O'Donnell says. Those trained as "lay- "We want to give the residents control over the peo- ple who have control over Dr. Hoss explains. The centre will find out what skills are already available in the community and what is needed. "Starting off from that base we will help give the people skills so they can look at their own situation and select courses of action train them to select programs which truly change their Mr. O'Donnell says. The Herald- Family helpers" would then be able to help others in the community and to carry the program on, he adds. This approach is very effec- tive because responsibility and the skills of helping are placed in the hands of the peo- ple of the community, Dr. Ross says. This type of program is new but well founded, he adds. It has been used in the United States where in some places the community members not only set up their own counsell- ing but ended up setting their own programs.
