Detours through the Parkinsonian Brain is a self-help book for and by people with Parkinson’s and their loved ones. With this book we want to:
- enable people to identify the thinking obstacles that stand in their way the most
- facilitate discussions on a relatively invisible topic
- inspire people to try out the detours of their peers
- inform and stimulate awareness.
The thinking obstacles and detours were retrieved as part of a scientific study: the COPIED study. COPIED symbolizes learning from each other by copying each other.
This book is meant to be flipped through at your leisure, to be left open on a page that appeals to you, to discuss with the people you love, to take to your caregiver, to leave it lying around on the kitchen table and then see what happens when others see it lying around. Above all, it is intended to make thinking obstacles in Parkinson’s so visible that its invisibility is no longer an obstacle in itself.
After the success of the Dutch version of this book we now also have a digital and printed version in English.
