< The stibcommitt6e is discussing
the possibility with Panama of
transferringabout 80 of the Canal
Zone Mental Health Center's 100
patients to facilities in Panama.
Nearly all of these are elderly, long-
time patients who are basically in
need .of nursing care. All giatients
to ,be transferred are noix-U.S.
Simmons estimated that the
Mental Health Center facilities will
continue in use under DOD for
another three years. A Department
of Psychiatry will also be set up
within Gorgas Hospital. If the
census of patients eligible for treat-
ment after the transition stays very
low, he added, consideration will
eventuallybe given to treating

The community health centers at
Railabow City and Paraiso will be
transferred to the Republic of Pan-
ama on October 1, 1979. The center
at Gamboa will be transferred to
the Health Services Command, but
the fate of Margarita and Balboa
Health Centers is still undecided.
The Health Bureau has recom-
mended to DOD that these, two
facilities be kep.t at least partially
open, Simmons said. The last plan
of the Health Service Command,
which is currently being revised, is
to offer community health care by

The subcommittee also has re-
sponsibility for overseeing the
transfer of Palo Seco Hospital to
Panama, an event that concerns
many people because of the hu an
itarian issue involved. Most of the
patients at the leprosarium have
been there for many years, Simmons
pointed out, and for them it is a
home and a way of life rather than
a facility for treatment. Simmons
says a training program will be es-
(Continued on p. 4)

Currently the Health Bureau is
treating a population of about
92,000 Canal organization em-
ployees, active duty membersof the
U.S. military,- and their dependents
and civilian employees of military
agencies and their dependents. After
the 30-month transition period, only
those employees who hold U.S.
citizenship and their dependents
will be eligible for treatment at
Department of Defense facilities.
The population served is expected
to drop gradually to about 45,000.
At some point after that, Simmons
commented, it is conceivable that
the Health Services Command will
perform a manpower survey to
ascertain the size of the stafE ac-
tuahy needed.
Gorges and Coco Solo hospitals
are two of the facilities that will be
transferred to the Department of
Defense on the day of implementa-
tion. In the past, Simmons said, con-
sideration was being given to closing
Coco Solo hospital and building: a
ten-bed holding facility in its place,
At present, he said, the outlook is
that Coco Solo Hospital will con-
tinue as it is. The Health Services
Command considers that it would
be more economical to maintain
Coco Solo Hospital than to briild a
new facility.

Second in a series of reports on
the progress of the binational sub-
committees preparing for the im-
plementation of the Patidma Canal
treaties on October 1, 1.979. .
On October 1, 1979, all Canal
Zone Government health services
dealing directly in patient care, with
a few exceptions, will be trans-
ferred to the Health Services Com
mand of the Department of De-
fense. Col. John R. Simmons, co-
chairman of the Health and Sanita-
tiori subcommittee, says he is hope-

mand is anxious to keep as much
of the present Health Bureau staff
as is willing to stay on, Simmons -
The Health and Sanitation Sub-
committee has no "input on the is- .
sues such as a change in leave sys-
tem, that face employees involved
in the transfer. The Health Ser-
vices Command, he says, is bound
by Civil Service regulations in these
matters and can make exceptions

'We Can Wokh Out' Is Theme of Conflict Resolution Workshop


December 1, 1978

vided into groups, and each group
developed a scene of conflict in the
workplace to be acted out by two
or three of its members. Together
they created a dialogue for the ac-
tors, one of whom was to behave
assertively while the other or others
were aggressive or nonassertive.
Group members called into play
the behavior patterns people actual-
ly choose during conflict situations
and applied the skills they had
learned for resolving conflict in a
way that allows botli parties to
come out winners. *
Each of the scenes was video-
taped by the Graphics Branch and
played back so that participants
could critique the handling of the
conflict from the viewpoints of both
the supervisor and the employee.
Lest it sound like all work and no
play, let your mind's eye envision
one of'the scenes acted out in the
recent workshop. An irate employee,
played by Pandora Aleman, is he-
ing told by her supervisor, played
by Mery McMillan, that her way
of dressing, in mini-skirts and see-
through blouses, is too suggestive
and therefore inappropriate for the
ofHee. ;
Pandora responds aggressively
that how she dresses is "lTghly per-
sonal" and that, after all, "I do
my job, at least no one's ever com-
Her assertive supervisor uses a
technique known as "fogging" to
quietly agree ivith her that in fact
he likes both her clothes and the
way she does her job. Then, like a
"broken record," he repeats the
problem, which is that her <.Inthe
are not suitkle for the office.
Not one to be easily confined to
the issue, Pandora attempt to di-
vert attention from herself first by
attacking her supervisor's way of
dressing: "Is purple the latest fash-
ion?" she asks sarcastically. Then

Imagine yourself in this situation:
You are standing near a cash reg-
ister waiting to pay for your pur-
chase. Other people, who came
after you, .are being waited on first.
You are getting tired of waiting,
What ivould you do? Would you
-take the article back t6 where
you picked it up or edge- closer to
try and catch the eye of the clerk.
---shout that you sure get poor
service in this store, slam the article
down on the counter and walk out.
-tell the clerk ih a voice loud
enough to be heard that you were

Employees who attended the
Workshop in Constructive Conflict
Resolution offered at the Training
Center for ,the first time recently
can tell you that if you picked the
first alternative you chose to resolve
the problem by being nonassertive>
i.e., by allowing your rights to be
violated. If you decided shouting
was the best solution, you behaved
aggressively, standing up for your
rights without regard for the rights
of others. If you chose to .tell the
clerk what you expected in the way
of service, you asserted yourself,
that is, you stood up for your legit-
imate rights in a direct, honest way
that did not violate the rights of
Learning how to handle everyday
conflict in a positive way is what the
three-and-one-half-day workshop
is all about. The focus of the course
is on teaching employees, partic-
ularly those in supert isons positions,
how to confryt and muumize or
resolve organizational conflicts con-
structively to create a more produc-
tive and harmonious working en-
The first group of Canal em-
playees to participate in the work-
shop ivere taught by the man who
spent three years developing and
refining the training course. Ron
Mead is an Employee Development
Specialist with the Communica-
tions and Office Skills Training Cen-
ter of the Civil Service Commission
in Washington, D.C.
The field of human relations is
a relatively new one for the Com-
mission, and Mead has been as-
signed to develop that area in train-
ing courses. Eight years of working
under conflict conditions in a gov-
ernment job in Fort Belvoir, Va.,
was good preparation for the task.
He left that job convinced that "It
doesn't have to be that way. People
should be able to enjoy each other."
In the conflict resolution work-
shop, Mead emphasizes the prac-
tical rather than the theoretical ap~
preach to problem solving. Parti-
cipants are taught to see how they
are coming across to others in the
context of the office situation and
are. given alternate behavior patt
terns to model themselves after.
Known in some quarters as asser-
tiveness training, class members
learn to go after what they want or -
to stand up for what they believe
in without hurting other people,
Because as Mead says "problem
solving requires effort and courage'
a lot of effort and a certain amount
of courage is required of employees
who participate in the workshop.
Among the ways class members
learned practical solutions to worka-
day conflicts was by dramatization,
or role-playing. The class was di-

.-. as

ods used to teach participants in the training course
how to resolve on-the-job otmilicts. Its their real life
roles O'Brien is a Freight House local agent and Voyles
is a police inspector in the Canal Zone Police Division.

A SCENE OF CONFLICT-Chuck O'Brien reasons
with his hard-driving supervisor Virgil Voyles in a dra-
matization performed at the Workshop in Constructive
Conflict Resolution. Role-playing as one of the meth-

of text-book cases to which \they
applied personal experience. They
saw short films, such as "The Fine
Art of Aggression" starring Nicole
Williamson, and analyzed what they
had seen. They listened to lectures
and took part in.exercises aimed at
such practical matters as how to
give a work assignment without
creating resentinent. There was
even a handout on dealing with
"The Abrasive Personality at the
Office, an issue that provided
Mead with the opportunity to state
a basic tenet of his course: few
-problems have easy answers; some
problems have no answers.
Mead emphasized that the work-
shop can only provide suggestions
and guidelines, not pat answers
or solutions to conflicts. An in-

have complained about her dress
habits. Going even a step further,
McMillan tells Pandora that he has
come into the office himself and
seen her leaning over a filing ca-
binet in a mini-skirt that was "quite
Pandora's response: "Are we talk-
ing about your personal hangups or
about something I'm doing wrong
on the job?"
Needless to say, the conflict over
costumes was eventually resolved
when both parties agreed that Pan-
dora did not want to be the subject
pf complaints at the office because
of her clothes.
Role-playing was just one of the
techniques used to help class memo
bers acquire conflict resolution
skills. Participants in the workshop

defensively to Pandora's cutting re-
mark about his choice of colors,
once again "fogs" by agreemg
that his cl thes are ot particular-
ly conservative. He deftly puts
aside her argument concerning
Harry by reminding her that Harry
works in the back room while she
works with the public. Then he sup- _
ports his basic argument by reluc-'

U.S.-citizens will no longer be
eligible for care at Gorgas and Coco
Solo health facilities after the
30-month period. The Health Bu-
reau is seeking agreement with Pan-
ama to permit injured non-U.S.-cit
izen employees covered by the Fed-
eral Employees Compensation Act
to be evaluated and treated for the
specific injury at Gorgas andCoco
Solo hospitals. Simmons indicates
that they are also seeking agree_
ment with Panama to permit initial
emergency care at Gorgas and Coco
Solo for injured non-U.S. citizens
who are covered by the Professional
Hazards Insurance of the Panama
Social Security system. Panama has
raised no real objections and has
expressed considerable interest for
the prompt evaluation and/or treat~
ment of all injured employees at
the nearest medical facility regard-
less of which injury compensation
law covers the employee. Once an
agreement is reached with Panama,
this issue will have to be discussed
with the Military.

The new Canal Commission will
employ two veterinarians to insure
proper sanitation aboard ships tran

physicians to oversee sanitation
within Canal operating areas and to

within the subcommittee .that the
Commission will contiixue its efforts
at maintaining control of mosquitos. .
Other issues the subcommittee is
discussing are the continued report-

El 19 de octubre de 1979, todos
los servicios de salubriBad del Go-
bierno de la Zona del Canal, que
tratan directamente con la atenci6n
m&dica de pacientes, con unas ex-
cepciones, serin transferidos al Co-
mando de Servicios de Salubridad
del Departamento de Defensa. El
Colonel Johzr R. Simmons, copre-
sidente de la Subcomisi6n de Salud
y Saneamiento, dice que esti opti-
mista que los pacientes de estas ins-
talaciones no notarin ninguna dife-
rencia en la atencibn que recibirAn
despubs de 14 transferencia, adn al
punto de ser tratados por los mis-
mos doctors que los trataron ante-
riordiente. El Comando de Servicios
de Salubridad desea retener a todo
empleado actual de la Direcci6n de
Salubridad que desee quedarse, in-
forma Simmons.
La Subcomisi6n de Salud y Sa-
neamiento-no tiene informaci6n so-
bre cuestiones tales como cambios
en el sistema de vacaciones que pu-
dieran afectar a los empleados in-
volucrados en la transferentia. Dice
que el Comando de Servicios de
Salubridad esti sujeto a los regla-
mentos del Servicio Civil con rela-
ci6n a estos asuritos y puede hacer
excepciones en beneficio de los em-
pleados del Canal s610 si la Ley de
Ejecuci6n de los tratados lo capa-
cita para hacerlo.

Actualmente, la Direcei6n de Sa-
lubridad esti prestando atenci6n
mbdica a unos 92,000 empleados de
4 prijailippign dg! peak miem-
bros del servicio active de las fuer-
zas armadas de los Estados Unidos,
y sus dependfentes, y empleados ci-
viles de las agencies de las fuerzas
armadas y sus dependientes. Des-
pubs del period de transici6n de
30 meses, s61o empleados de cinda-
dania norreamericana y sus depen-
dientes podrAn recibir tratamiento
en las instalaciones del D'eparta-
mento de Defensa. Se espera qize
la pobtacibn que recipe este servi-
cio disminuya gradual ente a
aproximadamente 45,000. En alguna
oportumdad, observe Simmons, es
de esperarse que el Comando de
Servicios de Salubridad efectuard
un studio de los recursos humans
a fin de determine el n6mero de
personal que realmente se necesita.
Los hospitals Gorgas y Coco So-
10 son dos de las instalaciones que
serin transferidas al Departamento
de Defense el dia en que entire en
vigencia los tratados. En un tempo,
dijo Sinimons, se pens6 cerrar el
hospital Coco Solo y construir una
enfermeria de diez camas en su lu-
gar. En la actualidad, dijo, la pers"
pectiva es que el hospital de Coco
Solo seguird como estA. El Coman-
40 de Servicios de Salubridad con-
sidera que seria mis econ6mico con-
servar el Hospital Coco Solo que
construir una nueva instalaci6n.
- La subcomisi6n esti gestionando
can el Gobierno de PanamA la po~
sibilidad de transferir aproximada-

mente 80 de los 100 pacientes del
Centre de Salud Mental de la Zona
del Canal a instalaciones en Pana-
mA. La mayoria de 6stos son pa-
cientes de edad avanzada lecluidos
desde hace mucho tempo y que bi-
sicamente necesitan cuidado en vez
de tratamiento. Todos los pacientes
que serian trasladados son cindada-
nos no estadounidenses.
Simmons opina que las instalacio-
nes del Centro de Salud Mental con-
tinuarin en uso bayo la administra-
ci6n del Departamento de Defensa
durante tres afios mis. Un departa-
mento de Psiquiatria tambi6n serA

recei6n de Salubridad ha recomen-
dado al Departaniento de Defensa
que estas dos instalaciones sigan
funcionimdo, por lo menos parcial-
inente, dijo Simmons. El 41timo pro-
yecto del Comando de Servicios de
Salubridad, que actualmente esti
siendo revisado, es que la Instala-
ci6n de Medicina Preventiva, esta-
blecida por MEDAC, brinde el cui-
dado de salud a la comunidad.
La Subcomisi6n tambi6n tiene la
responsabilidad de supervisor la
transferencia del Hospital de Palo
Seco a PanamA, cosa que preocupa
a muchas personas debido al aspec-
to humanitario. La mayoria de los
pacientes que se encuentran en el

ellos es un hogar y un modo de vida

en el lugar de trabajo interpretada
por dos o tres de sus miembros.
Conjuntamente crean un, dilogo
para los actors, uno de los que se
comportarb con positivismo mien-
tras qlue el otro u otros son agresivos
o carecen de positivismo. Los miem-
bros del grupo representan los ejem-
plos de comportamiento que las per-
sonas realmente adoptan durante.
situaciones de conflict y aplican las
habilidades que han aprendiao para -
solucionar el conflicto de tal manera
que le permit a ambos partidos
salir ganadores.
Cada escena es filmada por 61

ticipantes la oportunidad de presen-

forma c6mo se trat6 el conflict

manera de vestir, minifaldas y blu- .

decidi6 decirle a la camera *lo tlue
era esperado de ella con respect al
servicio, usted demostr6 positivis-
mo, es decir, usted defendi6 sus de-
rechos legitimos en una forma direc-
ta y honrada sin violar los derechos
de otros.
C6mo tratar los conflicts cotidia-

El campo d'e relaciones humans
es relativamente nuevor para la ~co-
mrisi6n, y Mead fue designado para
desarrollar esa irea en sus curses.
Ocho afios de trabajar en situaciones
de conficto en una posici6n guber-
namental en Fuerte Belvoir, Virgi-
nia, lo prepararon para esta tarea.
--Renunci6 esa posicibn convencido
que "No tiene que ser asi. Las per-

Durante el seminario de solucibn

Porque, segin Mead, "la soluci6n
