Working Groups

Research and science enhancement group (from 2019)

There have been several requests to create an international database, to make an inventory of PMT observation and evaluation tools, to share more results when new articles are published in the field of Psychomotricity, and there has been expressed a wish to promote a network of PM researchers.

This group will work on this general wish to collect and exchange research and articles, and on developing a network of exchange among researchers.

Actual missions:

  • Publish an article on current and needed research
  • Updating information how to do research
  • Supporting the EFP congress 2023

European Expertise Exchange Activities (E3) Group (from 2019)

There have been several requests for creating platforms allowing the exchange of new research, and promotion and organizing education based upon this research.

This group will focus on how to share information and educate professionals related to new research studies and share these ideas. The focus is on exchange, communication and education regarding research and knowledge.

Actual missions:

  • Creating an online seminar (webinar) to share about knowledge

Good practices and methodologies Group (2019 – 2023)

The proposition is to collect good examples of practices or methodologies that are interesting to share. This group will also have to take decide what to do with the practices and methodologies collected. The focus is on the practice of our profession/in our field. The aim is to share practice, methods and application between member countries.

Mission accomplished:

  • Creating Top Ten Card from each country according to best practice in Psychomotricity

The EFP psychomotor card set

Psychomotricity in Europe has a rich history in development, theoretical backgrounds and scientific evidence. In order to be able to give some explanation about the work of these professionals, this card set was created with examples from the different EFP-member countries.
The cards give an insight how psychomotor practitioners work with babies, children, adolescents, adults and elderly in individual and group sessions. The cards are divided into different target groups for psychomotor intervention.

These cards give an image of the diversity of activities and methodologies, but are only a few examples in the wide professional pallette. Next to that, these activities or methodologies have to be seen in ‘context’. This means that it is not an activity by itself, but always as a part of the professional work by people who are educated to work in practise.

There is a short bibliography on each card, which may inspire to read more about the theory and practice behind the examples on the cards.

These cards can be and inspiration for students, teachers as well as practitioners in the field of Psychomotricity. Secondly, they can be used to show to others with interest in the field of psychomotricity as a part of the explanation what professionals do.
