ports Psychology

By Dave Scott When you get the opportunity to sit with a sports psychologist, you do it… and you learn. Owner of North Shore Runners, Scot Brockbank, invited Dr. Natascha Wesch from the University of Western Ontario to speak to a local group of athletes of all ages… and I have to tell you, it was very engaging. We all endeavour to accomplish different athletic accomplishments. May it be as simple as starting out with walking around the block, to running a marathon. In order to reach our goals, we need to train our bodies to get in the shape required… but what about the mind? Hmmm, we leave so much to the physical training and not much to the mental training. I personally have to admit that a few years ago swimming from Pottahawk to Turkey Point, my mind played with me when my shoulder stopped working properly. I knew going into the swim that I was ready. I knew my body, its strengths and its weaknesses. Physically, I had no doubt, but I never really took the mental part into consideration. I learned a lot that day about my own mental makeup. When the shoulder stopped working with just a few kilometres to go, I was angry and determined… anger at myself for the shoulder problem, even though I could not control it (even threw my empty water bottle at my paddler… with my good arm – sorry Tim)… determined because I did not want to fail or disappoint myself… or anyone else. Mentally my mind was saying, shut it down, you are done. This mind game started from within, the nagging side saying, stop… and the positive side saying, push, you can finish this… it was all very frustrating. I did finish and then ran 10 km… and proved to myself that when I need to be, I can be mentally strong. When I was doing my first marathon last fall (fighting a sinus infection and a hernia), it was at 39 km that the mental strength kicked in, refusing to let me even consider stopping. The mind is a very powerful part of who we are and learning to use it properly is just as important for the person starting out walking around that block as to the person training for that first marathon. Which brings me back to Dr. Natascha Wesch, who played a variety of sports growing up… gymnastics, tennis, ringette, hockey, and rugby. Rugby was her calling; she ended up playing rugby for Canada for 10 years until her body began to break down. She then turned to coaching for Rugby Canada. It was during her playing years she sustained a shoulder injury… just two years away from the World Cup she wanted to keep

Scot Brockbank (right), owner of North Shore Runners, invited Dr. Natascha Wesch from the University of Western Ontario to speak to a local group of athletes. her spot on the team, so she turned to a sports psychologist for help… soon she was studying the science of sports psychology and earning degrees in health and rehabilitation psychology at McMaster University (Hamilton, Canada), and obtained her PhD in Sport Psychology from the University of Western Ontario (London, Canada) specializing in imagery and sport injury rehabilitation. Natascha also holds a Master’s degree in Exercise Physiology/Biochemistry from the University of Western Ontario, and a Bachelor's degree in Exercise Science/Athletic Therapy from Concordia University (Montreal, Canada). Natascha is an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Health Science at the University of Western Ontario, and is a member of the Canadian

Sport Psychology Association. Natascha started by talking about goal setting and more effective and efficient physical and mental training. Sport is 90% mental and yet we spend little time training ourselves that way. We need to train our brain. She talked about setting our main goal for the season, maybe a race or running a certain distance… make sure it is realistic, challenging and attainable with a long enough time line for training. From there we moved to short term goals taking a step-by-step approach to achieving success. Making yourself aware of what you need to do to make those goals

happen, an example is setting up a training program and sticking to it. It can be as simple as using positive action terms in your training… using the ABC-123 training method… ABC being three different aspects of training that day to work on… example running… a) breathing easier, b) keeping your body straighter, c) lighter on my feet. The 123 takes place after your training session 1 and 2 being the positive… example, 1) I felt good about my breathing and 2) I kept my shoulders back when running… 3 would be, something you might edit about the session, example, 3) I would keep my head level to enhance my breathing.

on, which was very interesting, was imagery and self-talk. With imagery we all have the vision of crossing the finish line… but why not practice that in your mind going over and over it. Make it a reality. Let it become ingrained so you know with the right physical training you will accomplish your goal. Natascha asked the group to stand, close their eyes and visualize a run we enjoyed and when you get there think about what you saw, what you heard. It was that happy point… and then she took us to a point where our run was hard… you felt heavy then she took us

We opened our eyes I was amazed at how clear my visual run was I knew exactly where it was and the moment where I became relaxed when running… amazing… and the dark point it was just as clear… I knew where I was and could feel that gut wrenching feeling returning… and when I went back to the happy run spot every thing felt light and strong again both mentally and physically. Our discussion on self-talk was about helping you work through a tough run for example… I can do this. I have done it before… it is a great day for a run… I feel light on my feet.

confidence can do wonders. Before the group knew it we had spent two hours with Natascha and felt like we had lots of new training methods to try… I have no doubt Scot will have her back again so we can pick her brain a little more. We just scratched the surface and on the way home more questions popped into my mind for Natascha…. Time to put some of her methods to work and start training my mind a little more!

Mumford & Sons Announce 2013 “Gentlemen of the Road” Stopover Shows - First-ever Canadian Stopover to take place in Simcoe, Ontario August 23 & 24 Mumford & Sons have announced details of the Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers, including the firstever in Canada, to take place in the summer of 2013. This unique event is headlined and curated by the Grammy Award Winning, multi-platinum selling British band, and will be held at the historic Norfolk County Fairgrounds in Simcoe, Ontario on August 23 & 24, 2013. Each Stopover combines the intimacy of a community celebration with the excitement of a world-class music festival. This year the Stopovers are expanding to a Friday night concert followed by an all-day Saturday event. Mumford & Sons will headline the Saturday show, alongside an eclectic and energetic roster of artists curated by the band themselves. A series of smaller events involving local businesses, venues, and, most importantly, local people will happen in and around the town. About this year’s upcoming Stopover tour, Mumford

& Sons said: “The Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers are all about live music. We get to put them on in towns not normally frequented by touring bands in busses or splitter vans. We deliberately look for towns that have something unique, or some vibe of which they are proud, explore them and enjoy what they have to offer.” Like last year, the outdoor events will take place in carefully selected and unique locations across the United States and Canada following a stop in the UK, and will feature a host of internationally acclaimed acts including Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, The Alabama Shakes, fun., The Vaccines, and many more to be announced. This year’s host towns include Simcoe, Ontario; Troy, OH; Guthrie, OK; and St. Augustine, FL. In 2012, the band curated seven total GOTR Stopovers: four in the United States, two in the UK, and one in Australia. In 2013, the festival is coming to Canada for the first time, to the Lake Erie county known as “Ontario’s Garden,” and will feature an exciting collection of Canadian and international artists, along with local vendors, food & beverage providers, and additional experiences both on the

his is a question that is often asked by someone who is wearing a hearing aid and the device is working perfectly and may even have new batteries! There is much information available for those who are wearing the hearing aid but so very little for the person who is speaking. At first thought one might think that nothing is really needed but then why would the question in the title be asked? Communication involves two abilities - one to hear and one to speak. Perhaps the speaker needs to review their part as well. Here are some suggestions for the speaker: - Have the attention of the person

dventures in Eldercare

By Dr. Bruce Veltri D.C., C.P.C.A.

ubstance abuse and seniors don’t seem to go together but recent trends in Canada indicate that it is a growing problem. As the population ages the number of seniors with substance abuse problems is on the rise, the main product being abused is alcohol with prescription narcotics and cannabis making up a smaller percentage. The health care system is aware of this growing

Total Vision Care Platinum Naturals

before speaking to them, for example don’t be going out the door - Face the person when talking to them - Lower your tone of voice but speak clearly, don’t mumble - Speak at a moderate speed - Over emphasizing does not help someone to hear - Wait for a reply before you go on talking - No chewing gum - Keep your hands away from your face - Ask the person - How am I doing? Any suggestions, please tell me! The person wearing the device will really appreciate your efforts and it gives them a boost in their ‘hearing self-confidence’!!! Now… there is also a question to be asked of the person with the hearing problem… Are you wearing your hearing aid??!!!

trend and all the organizations that deal with seniors are working together to educate health care professionals and care-workers about this growing problem. The National Initiative for the Care of the Elderly has a number of tools to assess and intervene when a senior is suspected of having substance abuse problems. You can review these tools at www.nicenet.ca. Senior specific approaches to substance abuse include: *The end goal of abstinence (quitting totally) is usually unrealistic so therefore a harm reduction goal that is related to quality of life improvement is the aim. An example of harm reduction is having the senior take a taxi to the liquor store in the winter to help reduce the chance of breaking a hip from walking in icy conditions. *Treatment should be focused on what can make life better, more comfortable and happier, not only on the substance abuse. *Problematic use is not defined by the amount of alcohol consumed but rather by the negative effect on the person’s daily life. *If an older person presents with repeated falls, head injuries or failure to thrive (sick all the time) a discussion of substance abuse should be initiated in a non threatening way as part of a comprehensive history. *Isolation and marginalization must be addressed through practical methods. It is essential to get the senior involved in social activities such as day programs, outings and groups.

Dr. Bruce Veltri is the owner of Victoria Eldercare, a home care agency matching exceptional care-givers with elderly seniors to help them maintain independence and remain safely in their own home. If you have any questions you can speak directly to me (519-426-7300) or with our general manager, Mr. Phillip Poss at 519-429-2644, or visit our web-site at www.victoriaeldercare.com.

I believe that the last point is the most important. If you are going to deal with the root causes of substance abuse problems you have to look at isolation and boredom. Isolation and boredom often lead to depression. Depression in seniors is common and depression and substance abuse go hand in hand. Treating the underlying causes of substance abuse is paramount in successfully controlling the problem. Health Canada states that the best practices identified by research demonstrates that older seniors that have substance abuse problems are best treated by a fourfold approach 1. Harm Reduction 2. Home visiting known as “outreach” 3. Intensive case management 4. Social and Recreational programs Few seniors that are dependent on alcohol will readily admit to the problem. Therefore, vigilance in this matter by the senior’s children, care-givers, health-care providers and friends in identifying the individual with substance abuse and initiating a treatment program is a very important component to a successful outcome.

Ontario’s Harmonize For Speech Foundation and The Simcoe Gentlemen Of Harmony “Ordinary Guys Making Extraordinary Music” Help Children in our Community Courtesy of HNPSLP These gentlemen are anything but ordinary! Staff of the Haldimand Norfolk Preschool Speech and Language Program (HNPSLP) is pleased to announce that their musical friends have again provided open-hearted financial support to preschool aged children with speech and language difficulties across our two counties. On Thursday January 31st, Ray Danley, Director of The Simcoe Gentlemen of Harmony, along with Charles Gillyatt, Chairman for Harmonize For Speech Simcoe Chapter, Roger Wiens and Peter Vaughn visited the HNPSLP Simcoe site. They presented Senior Speech Language Pathologist Lori Holstein with a generous donation. This donation will be used to purchase three iPads with cases for use in sessions at all four speech and language sites in Simcoe, Dunnville,

Langton and Caledonia. Members of the HNPSLP team, families and media were present at this event. The Harmonize for Speech Foundation provides funds for numerous speech-related projects and equipment at hospitals, clinics and treatment centres throughout Ontario. They have helped the HNPSLP several times in the past with generous donations allowing the organization to provide enhanced services and purchase much needed equipment for the program as well as materials for families. The Simcoe Gentlemen of Harmony quartets have performed for many years at May is Speech and Hearing Month events moving children to dance and adults to tears when they sing “We Sing That They Shall Speak”. Thank you Barbershoppers for your continued support! We are Speechless!

• Poor judgment abilities If you (or someone you know) snore and have any of these symptoms you may have Sleep Apnea. If you suspect you may have Sleep Apnea, the first step is to discuss this with your family physician. It is important if you suspect you have Sleep Apnea to speak to your doctor because left untreated Sleep Apnea can lead to Type II Diabetes, stroke, heart attack, irregular heart rhythms, high blood pressure, or driving related accidents.

By MARG WERDEN Opportunities for learning abound!

The St. Williams Conservation Reserve Community Council is inviting the public to attend an Open House at the St. Williams Forestry Station Interpretive Centre (885 Regional Road 24) on Saturday, February 16 from noon to 3 p.m. The event will provide an opportunity to learn about the Conservation Reserve and its unique features. The two tracts of Crown land that comprise the Reserve were designated as a provincial Conservation Reserve in 2008 and, at 1,034 hectares, is one of the largest blocks of forest in southwestern Ontario. Its exceptional biodiversity and rare habitats are recognized regionally, provincially and nationally. Some of the many rare and endangered plants and animals that call the Reserve home include the Eastern Flowering Dogwood, Cerulean Warbler, and the Eastern Hog-nosed Snake. The St. Williams Conservation Reserve Community Council volunteers have raised more than $300,000 since 2009 for the management of the Reserve and for the protection of species-at-risk habitat. The public is encouraged to explore the Conservation Reserve by using its extensive trail system throughout the year. Anyone interested in joining the Community Council or volunteering with the Friends of the St. Williams Conservation Reserve, who monitor trail conditions and assist at community work days, can contact the council at info@swcr. ca or visiting their website at www. swcr.ca.

Calling young birders!

Sorry this is just for the truly

Six young birders will have the opportunity to learn about ornithology and banding birds, such as this Palm Warbler, at the Long Point Bird Observatory during a ten-day workshop to be held in August. Applications are due April 30, 2013. young, not for those of us who are only young at heart! The Long Point Bird Observatory is looking for keen teen birders to apply for the 2013 Doug Tarry Natural History Fund - Young Ornithologist Workshop to be held from Saturday, August 3 to Sunday, August 11. The objective of this workshop, which takes place every summer at the Long Point Bird Observatory, is to foster the interests and development of ornithology in Canadian teenagers. The ten-day workshop/natural history camp is a major component of the Long Point Bird Observatory’s educational program. Many of Canada’s talented field biologists got their start at this workshop since its inception in the mid-1970s. Thanks to the foresight and generosity of humanitarian and naturalist Doug Tarry, the Workshop is free for the selected applicants. The Workshop focuses on "handson" learning and training in field ornithology. It provides a unique opportunity for likeminded teenagers to enhance their knowledge and skills in the scientific study and aesthetic enjoyment of birds. Participants learn how to identify, age and sex birds, and how scientists study populations and behaviour. Careful and skilled instructors teach bird handling and banding techniques, how to prepare specimens for scientific study, and bird monitoring techniques. Regularly scheduled afternoon field trips to places of biological interest within the Biosphere introduce participants to the flora and fauna of the region. Evening programs include slide presentations and nocturnal fieldwork. Space is limited to six participants, ranging in age from 13 to 17 years old. The award covers all direct costs of the workshop (accommodation, meals, travel while at Long Point, and professional instruction).

Recipients are responsible for their own transportation to and from Long Point, though a small travel grant may be available. Prospective participants are invited to download and complete the application form (www. birdscanada.org/lpbo). Completed applications should be sent to the Doug Tarry Bird Study Awards Long Point Bird Observatory, P.O. Box 160, Port Rowan, Ontario N0E 1M0 (fax 519-586-3532), E-mail: lpbo@birdscanada.org, by April 30, 2013.
