ELAYNE TANNER Registered Social Worker Counselling & Psychotherapy Milton 905-854-0801 Q: My boyfriend is Saiways angry. | know he didnt have a great childhood, but does that explain it? Can it have any negative effects? Is there hope for change? A: Many individuals who have anger issues did have difficult childhoods. Sometimes a parent was ill and not available. Sometimes a parent abandoned the child, and sometimes parents are violent and dofestic assault is common in the child's life. Racism, bullying and other acts of aggression can also result in an angry individual. The key is that the individual must learn to stap blaming others for his or her anger, deal with the issues from the past, and fake responsibility for their present behaviour Assessments can measure an individual's anger and anticipate their reactions Frequently someone with excessive anger is likely to express that anger outwardly, either verbally or physically. These reactions often mean that the individual finds themselves in a difficult situation with relationships and sometimes in conflict with police Anger can be dealt with in anger management groups and in individual counselling i] sessions with an experienced therapist. If tha court is already involved, the individual may suddenly find him or herself motivated to make changes. Even though | hope that any parficipants in. an anger management program will want to- make the changes for their own personal growth, if you are hoping to lessen court charges, be 'sure that the program or individual therapist you chose will be accepted by the courts after completion. Most private groups or individuals are not accepted. | am accepted unless a specific program is mandated Check with your lawyer. | do not do PARS Finally, if anger is not dealt with through counselling and relaxation skills, the individual might develop anxiety and depression issues. They are also more likely fo develop high blood pressure, cardiovascular (heart] issues and hypertension problems. Obviously, |: it is better to deal with anger before it has brought. you into conflict with the law or damaged your health.

RON STROHAN OPTOMETRIST | WAKEFIELD PROFESSIONAL CENTRE 106 WAKEFIELD RD MILTON, ONTARIO - L9T 21L8 PHONE: 905-878-5882 WWW.MILTONEYEANDVISIONCARE.COM Dr. Ron Strohan Optometrist October is Children's Vision Month Professional eye exams are an important part of your child's heath since children are generally unable to recognize potential issues with their eyesight. Technological advances in computers and tablet-use is putting 4 major shift in their dependence in the education and social aspects in life. Unfortunately, the use of "smart devices" not only changes the ability to relax focus on distance objects, it has caused an increase in near sightedness. This is due to the constant looking at near objects. Research shows that spending: 2 hours outdoors with outdoor activities can positively affect the"progression of near sightedness. My clinical findings as well show, people who continually look down are unable to move their eyes up. This will eventually cause postural issues. ' Looking for self-help treatments pertaining to health, cduses an increase in major health issues being assumed to be correct "by self-diagnosis". Vision and health related issues are generally difficult to differentiate if not evaluated by a thorough Comprehensive Eye Examination. Assuming your child can see does not mean they actually are viewing and learning accurately and to their full potential. Many behavior developments are related to Visual Function.

Losing a tooth may be exciting when you are a child, but it's never a happy occasion when you are an adult. And yet, unfortunately, it happens al too often that a tooth is lost. This may be because of advanced gum disease, trauma, or a tooth that is unrestorable due to a large cavity or a deep crack. Dr. Tony Wan B.Sc, DDS. Most people are interested in replacing a lost front tooth ASAP with an implant, bridge or partial denture. In fact, they usually won't go outside without a replacement. But what if it's a molar that you can't easily see? Why go through the expense of replacing it? Because when you lose a molar and don't replace it, you not only lose that tooth, but, in effect, you lose the opposing one as well since it's not being used to chew either. That puts more load on the teeth adjacent to the lost tooth than they were designed to bear, which can lead to fractures and ultimately the loss of these teeth too. These adjacent teeth will eventually tip which will compromise them further and that means you won't be able to chew as effectively. So don't let yourself get lulled into an "it's only one tooth" mentality if you lose a molar. Replace it so you can chew efficiently and spread the load so your other teeth aren't prone to being lost as well' = woo'uo}jeyapisul 6102 '01. 489030 'Aepsiny] | uoidweyd ueipeued uo | zz » >
