Page 8 - Wednesday, September 24, 1980 [ 000uth Washington, School Reports , By C. L. PAUl,SON FIELD TRIP On Friday, September 12, the eighth graders at Washington School toured "The Geysers" geothermal energy plant. Two excellent guided bus tours were provided. Students learned that The Geysers was discovered by William Bell Elliot-|n 1847 and originally used as a resort area. It was first developed as an energy source in 1922 and has been expanding since then most recently under the aegis of PG&E and Union Oil Comvany of California. At the present time this unique energy source provides six to eight percent of PG&E's total generating capacity. The "fumaroles" which provide this steam energy are the only ones under commercial development in the United States, and The Geysers Power Plant is since 1973 the largest geothermal plant in the world. This tour provided an interesting insight for many students into an unusual idustry which is an in- /, tegral part of our local environment. It also gave students valuable in- formation about local geology and history "SMILE" Last week the sixth grade rooms of Ms. Burke and Mrs. Lepere designed and created "smile machines" as a homework project for "Smile Week." The pur- pose of this assignment was for students to exercise their imaginations and create a box that would fmction in some way to make people laugh or smile. Students also made lists of "smile" words for a vocabulary and composition unit as well as bringing in Pictured are sixth grade sdents with their ....... . imaginative "Smile Boxes."

Coun- seling is saught because a person realizes that he or she has a problem - a per- sonality problem. Personality problems result from unresolved internal conflicts and ten- sions. Difficulties arise when the individual cannot adjust the tensions within him or herself; when the problems within begin to affect ones behavior with other people in "outside" situations. A person is said to have a nervous breakdown because he is so overworked and has so many responsibilities that it all gets to be too much. BUT when was the person loading himself down with so much work and so many respon- sibilities in the first place? Inner tension and con- flicts occur naturally in all of us. We struggle with what we "ought to do" as compared with what we feel like doing. There is the conflict between what we see ourselves as being and what we think we ought to be. Personality disorders arise when inner tensions individual cannot adjust the tensions. For example, when Sam sought coun- seling he was having problems in college. He was very domineering and had trouble working wit h people. He saw the in: structers as deviant and blamed the other students for lack of initiative. Sam was very ambitious and wanted to be successful, but the counselor also noted that Sam felt very inferior. The conflict between the feelings of inferiority and the desire for success drove Sam to try and dominate Pictured with the originators of "'Smile Week," Ms. Burke (far left) and Mrs. Lepere (far right) are the winners of the "Smile Box" contest.

In con- junction with this, students learned how to search for facts in news articles and how to put necessary in- formation into their writing for newsworthy articles. The articles, of course, 'made one smile, smile, smile ! every situation, class and person he was involved with A balance needed to be worked out, because these two tensions were in eonflict with each other. Over several months of school and counseling Sam continued to join or develop many reform groups. In time he gained some recognRion for his work in these grops which began to build up his self-esteem and allow for adjustments between the inferiority and exaggerated ambition. (Case study in The Art of Counseling by Rollo May.) Personality is not a static thing. We are constantly learning and growing and receiving new input to evaluate and make ad- justments in our way of looking at things. One cannot be rid of the ten- sions, but the person with personality problms tries to escape and not make the adjustments. The locus of personality problems is the adjustment of tensions  within the in- dividual even though the person with a problem will attempt to shift the blame to 'Friends' need books for annual sale Cloverdale Regional Library.

NOT SO. The problem is inside the individual, and the role of the counselor is to help the individual focus on himself and the conflicts within that are resolved. Examples of tensions being out of adjustment include constant em- barrassment, timidity, extraordinary shyness, continuous worry and anxiety, fears of meeting people, constant fear of failure in school or work, an inability to concentrate, and a continuous tendency to dominate people and situations ...... "The individual with such a personality difficulty hasa conflict within himself which to some extent paralyzes him. Whena personality problem becomes so severy that the individual cannot carry on in his work or his relatons with other people, we describe it by the term 'aeeurosis'."

"Everyone has per- sonality problems, and everone is continuously in the process of readjusting the tensions within his personality. No one is completely 'normal'. For example, we all have had the wish at some time not to meet a certain other per- son; we may have crossed the street to avoid en- countering this person. Now, if this grows into a desire to avoid anumber of persons, or possibly everybody, so that we remain always behind closed doors at home, we shall have regressed into a neurotic state." SO who needs counseling and who is "normal?" The "normal"individual is able to manage his or heremotional conflicts. The person having problems is not able to manage the emotional conflicts within him or herself. When the stress becomes too great, and the managment of tension falls apart, it is time to consider counseling. Robert Anthony III reports for duty Navy Machinist's Mate Fireman Apprentice Robert B.

Did you know that the Jefferson School's Library has been moved? At Jef- ferson School there was a county building where for several years exceptional children came for their education. A couple of years ago the children were moved to Washington School, since they had extra room, in exchange for the county building on Jef- ferson's grounds. The building had to he brought up to school code to house the library, that is why it took two years to move the library. You might say why move the library at all? Well, Jefferson School has been fortunate in getting special funding from special programs for disad- vantaged children, and the state says that the room bought with Title I funds must be used for the same purpose. And so, the library moved. Please stop by and take a look at the library. It is lovely, with more room for more books, cassettes, records, tapes, etc. 'l.ere are some new tables and chairs, which is more en- ticing for more students to become involved in the library and reading. The old library has now been converted into special room to help special children in various needs. Dick Johnson, a specialized reading teacher is housed in this room, and he has just named the old library The I.trning Resource Center. Dens Gambetta, Dick Johnson's aide, is also in this room, along with our 'mew teacqher Renee Robertson, who is the four- hour a da Larning Dis- ability teacher. A new aide who has worked previously in the Learning Disability field, Mrs. Iverson, has been hired to be Renee's aide. Renee has a husband, Darrell, who is a phar- macist at Warrack Hospital in Santa Rosa. They have a daughter, Pierrette, who is nine months old. Renee grew up in Sebastopol, California, and has lived in Cloverdale for the past four years. She taught one year in the first grade in Manteca and for five years as a Learning Disabilities teacher at Mark West School District in Santa Rosa. She has an elementary and learning handicapped credentials. Renee attended the University of the Pacific chool of Education at Stockton, Santa Rosa JC, and Analy High School.
