Psychomotricity puts special emphasis on the interconnectedness between motor, emotional, social and the individual’s mental life. The term Psychomotricity means the interconnectedness between these areas of human life and their influence on the development of the individual’s competences in the psychosocial context.
In other words, learning through the body that moves, senses and plays, combined with the creation of a maximum satisfying relationship and communication with others, is the basis of Psychomotricity.
Psychomotricity is based on scientific concepts of different disciplines such as Neurobiology, Psychology, Special Education, Sports and Rehabilitation.
Proceeding from this theoretical premise, different countries and regions in Europe have developed specific practices that put the actions of the individual in this mutual influence in the foreground. They are used in preventive, educational and therapeutic psychomotor practices. In different countries, there are higher Educational Levels (Bachelor and Master) and continuing education. In some countries the diplomas for Psychomotor professionals are recognised by their governments. The amount of scientific researches in the field of Psychomotricity is constantly increasing.
Currently in Bulgaria there is no higher educational level in the discipline, nor an independent profession.
