Based on a holistic view of mankind, which presumes the unity of body, mind and spirit, the name Psychomotricity explains the mutual influence of cognition, emotion and movement and their influence on the development of an individual’s competency within a psychosocial context. Departing from this theoretical premise different countries and regions across Europe have developed specific practices which place the individual’s actions in this mutual influence into the foreground. They are used in preventive, pedagogical and therapeutical practices. They have led to education and further education, and diplomas recognised by governments. An increasing number of scientific research focuses on this subject matter.
In order to promote psychomotricity in a pedagogic and therapeutic use,
in education and further education, in the professionalization and in scientific research,
the below named members associate as the “European Forum of Psychomotricity”.
