A Mysterious Mr. Tourette at the Human Library in Cracow

A Mysterious Mr. Tourette at the Human Library in CracowOn 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.

Tourette Syndrome

Tourette Syndrome is an inherited, neurological condition, its key features are tics, involuntary and uncontrollable sounds and movements.  The tics are usually of a mild nature, however in the more extreme condition they can manifest themselves in involuntary swearing or making obscene or otherwise unacceptable movements or gestures.

 

The disorder is named after Gilles de la Tourette, the  French neurologist and neuropsychiatrist, , who in 1885, whilst working  at the Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital in Paris, described 9 cases of this condition.
