A Mysterious Mr. Tourette at the Human Library in Cracow
On 17. Okt. 2015 Joanna Dębicka - the leader of the Programme With Tourette Across Poland from the area of Cracow - took part in the Human Library which is an event dedicated to challenge prejudice and discrimination through social contact. The volunteer handed out the information and advertising material among the participants.
Just like in a real library, a visitor to the Human Library can choose a Book from a range of titles. The difference is that Books are people, and reading is a conversation.
Social contact is known to be among the best ways to challenge prejudice, and the Human Library enables it to flourish. The Human Library provides a safe environment for people to engage in conversation within a framework of respect, and with the permission to respectfully ask questions and share experiences. The dialogue that the Human Library facilitates has the potential to challenge prejudice, stigma and discrimination.
The Association offers support to persons with Tourette Syndrome and their families. We create opportunities for them to meet up and interact. Our objective is also to share the awareness about the nature of Tourette Syndrome and indicate the opportunities for therapy.
In order to meet these objectives, the Association has embarked on educational campaign based on spreading the information and publications about TS. The Association collaborates with the specialists and relevant authorities in the fields of education, health and science research.
