In 2009 EFP and the International Organization of Psychomotricity and Relaxation (OIPR) signed a protocol of collaboration with the aim to promote more effectively the profession of Psychomotrician at the European and International levels for the benefit of the professionals and in the respect to the patients.
The “European Forum of Psychomotricity” (EFP), the “Organisation International de Psychomotricité et de Relaxation” (OIPR) and the “Red Latinoamericana de Universidades con Formación en Psicomotricidad” (Red Fortaleza de Psicomotricidad) are international institutions involved in the development of psychomotricity through high quality innovative activities in the area of education, professional development, research and political initiatives.
This declaration is the expression of shared principles between the EFP, OIPR and Red Fortaleza in order to provide a conceptual and methodological reference for the development of psychomotricity and to promote the profession of psychomotricians for the benefit of professionals and also of target populations of their practices.
3. Support to national political or scientific initiatives
EFP has supported several political and scientific initiatives developed by national professional Associations with the political or university authorities of the different member countries.
