2 Sun Newspapers WEDNESDAY, July 31, 2013. General News << SUNNewspapers Clinic a boost for uni PSYCHOLOGY services in the Top End have received a boost with the opening of a new clinic at Charles Darwin University. The clinic will be staffed by students undertaking advanced postgraduate training in clinical psychology. CDU Head of Psychology Professor Kate Moore said all interns were provisionally registered psychologists with the Psychologists National Registration Board and would work under the supervision of fully registered psychologists. This year CDU has offered a Masters course in Clinical Psychology providing students with the opportunity to gain professional registration as a psychologist in the Territory, Professor Moore said. The course . . . will contribute to overcoming the shortage of mental health professionals in the workforce, and to the health and wellbeing of Territorians. Appointments are available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Sessions cost $15. The clinic is at CDUs Casuarina campus, Yellow Building 1.2.30. Visit psychologyclinic.cdu.edu.au or phone 8901 8800. Gorgeous George George the gentle giant not as scary as he looks. Picture: HELEN ORR THIS week we chat to Helen Orr of Stuart Park about her pet pooch, who looks like a giant to some . . . What is your dogs name? George. Where does the name come from? Why did you pick it? Because hes George the gentle giant. Where and why did you get a dog? I found him looking very malnourished running across a very busy highway outside of Echuca. I found the owners and they didnt want him. Why do you love your dog? He feels guilt, shame, remorse, love and compassion. He never argues back except to sigh if hes not getting his own way. If your dog could talk, what do you think he would say to you? Go cook me some pork crackling lady! Do you talk cute with your dog? I just talk dog with my dog. Share with us a funny story of you and your dog. George is great at chasing the ball, but never bringing it back, or chasing others tennis balls and never giving them back its only child syndrome. What sort of a role does your dog play in your life? Me and George like to shoot a few rings on the basketball court and watch Dexter together. George is also fond of car rides even to the servo two minutes away. If there is one superpower you could give your dog, what would it be and why? I wish he would be invisible to the dog catcher. If there was something you could change about your dog, what would it be and why? I wish he would appear smaller to people who are afraid of him when they meet him in the park. What is your dogs favourite toy and why? Malibu Barbies. Hes always had a thing for blondes. Does your dog play games? If so, which ones? Mostly just Scrabble.

Students from across the Top End were all excited to lend a hand to support the cause. Member for Drysdale Lia Finocchiaro spent the morning at the Kids Brigade Childcare Centre at Durack. This is an opportunity for children to learn about environment awareness and the benefits of having a healthy community, she said. A group of US Marines and Australian Defence Force soldiers took part in the event. Ms Finocchiaro said by growing local native trees, shrubs and ground cover, it was hoped animals would be provided with food and shelter. Students at Bakewell Primary School teamed up with Bridge Toyota to plant native trees. Many of the saplings and seedlings planted will provide bush tucker as the trees mature. Angela Lawlor, 10, said she was excited to help plant trees at her school. Planting trees is important, so we keep up the greening of the planet, she said. Last year, Australians planted more than one million native trees, shrubs and grasses at more than 3300 National Tree Day events.
