Update from Ankara, Turkey

Update from Ankara, Turkey

Ankara, Turkey – February 2017

January 2016 – After an initial thought in 2010 and a journey of patience, tolerance, determination, courage and trust, the JF publication Lifting Your Spirits: Seven Tools for Coping with Illness (LYS) is now published in Turkish!

Speech and Language Therapist, Reyhan Hosgor Erguden MSc, who initiated this project, tells us she has shared LYS with members of a book club in Izmir (February 2016) and with hospital personnel, patients and their relatives at Tepecik Training and Research Hospital last May at the invitation of the hospital administrator Prof. Dr. Gokhan Akbulut. She reports that both presentations were greatly appreciated.

Recently, she worked with a young cancer patient and her parents, using exercises from LYS at Medicana Hospital, Ankara, with permission from a nurse, who has now started to use LYS with patients. To encourage and facilitate this, Reyhan has given LYS and its commentaries as a gift to the oncology department.

We hope to hear more on this in due course.
