Coping Strategies 'Tips and Tricks' is a collection short film clips that showcase tips and tricks created by people with Parkinson’s and their carers. Individuals have developed these strategies for coping with Parkinson's on a daily basis in order to manage their difficult moments when medication is not working well and symptoms re-emerge.
The clips were presented during various Parkinson's Europe physiotherapy workshops between 2004 and 2007. The workshops were run by Mariella Graziano, a physiotherapist with a special interest in movement disorders, in particular Parkinson's.
These Coping Strategies videos are the result of Mariella’s firm belief that the advice of another person with Parkinson’s can be just as effective as that given by a professional. Mariella encourages people to address their specific mobility problems and share their techniques with others.
These Coping Strategies videos are available on YouTube.
