The 'held in the Sewing Center t, July 28, 1977 Norwegian social worker to return home Ms. Mette Holmern Ms. Mette Holmern of Oslo, Norway, will soon be ending a lO-week visit to Calhoun and Gilmer Counties. During that time she has shared her experience as a social worker with the local Department of Welfare as part of an exchange program. Ms. Hohaern says the experience has given her a different perspective on her own country and her work. She has been staying with Harry and Wandaline Drake of Baldwin. She has been included in all kinds of social events along with her work in the various departments of service in the Welfare Dept. The program ends Aug. 17, with two more weeks here and one week in Morgantown. where the visitors will meet and exchange their exveriences. Ms. Holmern says the rural poverty of West Virginia is quite different than impoverished conditions in Norway. She has observed some welfare services similar to the ones administered in her country and some that are completely different. different. There are no food stamps in Norway. "Our clients ere given money, and we must learn to trust them, that they will spend the money for food." Only if the clients are known to be users of drugs or alcohol are there any restrictions on cash 8rants for food. "Food stamps can be humiliating in some cases," she says. In Norway there are not as many divisions of labor in the Welfare Departments. The same worker will determine eligibility and provide services, or make referrals for special needs. Showing sympathy for those who lmte tG ask for help. .'Holmern said this system of one worker keeping Pine Manor Grocery GLFAVILLE, WV Bear LTD compound bows, $127.95 Bear white tail hunter compound bows, $77.95 " 22 meg g in. barrel, $99.99 Ruger super single six .22./.. -- " "' "1"1 mag., $129.95 Colt new frontier, 7 m. barr=, .u..-= Colt huntsman ,emi-autonlic, .6. in. ba;r,, .22, $139.95 Colt targetsman semi-automatic, o . barrel, .22, $189.95 Remington 788, with 4X scope, any caliber, $139.99 These are all new, sale ends July 30th the same client all through eligibility and services kept the client from having to tell the same story over and over. "It's not necessary to lose dignity to get welfare services," she said. The social worker is given some latitude and can use some imagination in helping those who ask for assistance, although there and here there are always some rules to be followed. At the same time she thinks that overidentifying with the client will not help the worker or client, although in some instances the social worker sees needs that offer few choices. Here or there, there are rules and regulations, and sometimes the worker doesn't agree with the policy, but there is no choice but to follow the rules, Being in the United States has given Ms. Holmern a t/me to look at her home country of Norway from a different perspective. She has re- flected on what her home country means to her, and come to have a better appreciation of her country. She has studied and worked in England and Germany. so this is not her first experience away from her home country. And her view of the United States has changed after the close association with people here. She had heard all kinds of stories about the United States, many not true. A wide difference of opinion on just about every subject is what she has found. Ms. Holmern speaks English with barely an accent. English is compulsory in the schools of Norway, and other languages are stressed. She has also studied German and French. She is a graduate of a School of Social Work in Norway, and all social workers are required to have a degree in that field before they are so employed. Norway has a 12 year educational system, nine years compulsory. There are only four universities in all of Norway, but there are many special schools for training of the professions. In Norway, Ms. Holmern enjoys skiing, swimming, hiking and camping. There are plenty of open spaces where campers may go and be alone. One of the things she misses here is fish, a main feature in her country's diet. Hospitality here has been tremendous, she says. Foreigners receive special treatment, and are made to feel welcome. She said that after an article had appeared in a Parkersburg newspaper about her being here she had received a call I INSTRUCTION "'Drbe emt,t,.ea by.

Her time here has been taken with all kinds of social events, about all of her spare time already promised. It will be over August 17. and back in Norway Ms. Holmern will have added to her experiences those of a social worker in rural West Virginia. a place she will remember for many reasons.
