Module 1: Basics of Psychomotricity
Perception and movement are essential engines of human development over the entire life span. In a wide range of psychomotor practical offers you will experience the possibilities of making contact through movement, of communicating with others, of expressing yourself and of perceiving yourself in group processes. Movement games invite you to experiment in order to grasp materials and objects of the environment, to grasp physical properties and to act actively on the environment. You will train your observation and description skills and learn how to create suitable observation situations for different questions.
On the basis of your own experience, theoretical basics and relationships are presented, which offer explanatory models for the experience and show you practical suggestions for the possible uses of psychomotor development promotion in your own professional practice.

Module 2: Play and development
Creating space means creating an atmosphere in which learning and development are made possible through play and movement, through an appreciative relationship and an attitude towards the individual. At the same time, (physical) spaces and their design create a learning environment in which new skills can be acquired, ideas can be introduced and individual development can be supported. In various play and movement situations, one’s own posture and role as a designer of games and as a game companion is experienced and reflected upon. Diverse practical ideas and suggestions show how one can create and use scope in different professional fields and for different target groups.

- Play in history and culture
- Themes of play, development of play, theories of play
- Sense-understanding approach in Psychomotricity

Module 3: Embodiment and dialogue in Psychomotricity
The essence of being human is interacting and building relationships. These processes are fundamentally embodied and they take place as psychomotor dialogues. Experiencing one’s own action competencies and experiencing oneself as effective are central building blocks for the development of a positive self-concept and one’s own identity. Psychomotor dialogues as well as psychomotor play and movement offers awaken the joy of movement, the joy of relating successfully to each other and thus support healthy development from childhood to senior age. A healthy constitution, diverse skills and a positive self-concept are also considered protective factors (resilience factors) to successfully cope with adverse and stressful life situations and conflicts. You will acquire extensive theoretical and practical skills in order to recognize resources, to promote action skills and to positively support personality development through psychomotor dialogues and through targeted psychomotor offers.
- Psychomotor dialogue in theory and practice
- Resonance and dialogue
- Self-concept, identity and personality development
- Coping with conflict situations and violence

The final course is dedicated to the application and reflection of what has been learned in the courses in practice. This includes the organisation, preparation, implementation and reflection of psychomotor experiences with different target groups. Facility-related framework conditions and target group-specific content are taken into account. The guiding principle for the psychomotor professional competence is the examination of one’s own movement biography, one’s own dialogical and reflexive competence as a psychomotor specialist and the professional attitude.
