X World Congress of Psychomotricity

4 - 7 May 2023

Verona - Palazzo Gran Guardia

Psychomotor disorders: update.

Perspectives for the intervention in Psychomotricity

The congress is organised by the Ciserpp, the Italian Center for Studies and Research in Psychology and Psychomotricity in cooperation with OIPR, the International Organization of Psychomotricity and Relaxation, the EFP, the European Forum of Psychomotricity and the University of Verone. It will take place in Verone, Italy, from 4th to 7th of May 2023.

The International organization of psychomotricity and relaxation (OIPR) is a scientific international association born in 1970s with the main purposes to create a network among the psychomotricians of all countries to develop a common education, to promote profession in the world, to support research. Currently it is made up of many delegations and organizations in Europe, in south and north America, in the Middle East and in Africa: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Cameroon, Chile, Congo, Denmark, Ecuador, France, Italy, Lebanon, Mexico, Paraguay, Perù, Portugal, Spain, Uruguay.

The European Forum of Psychomotricity (EFP) was founded in 1996 in Marburg and its main goal is to support the discipline of Psychomotricity in Europe in educational, preventative, and therapeutic practice; in foundational and continuing education; in professionalisation of the working field and scientific research. 14 countries are currently members of efp: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland.

The objectives of the CITAP Foundation are to foster the promotion of people in difficult situations or at risk of social exclusion, with special dedication to the care of minors and young people; to promote training, research and dissemination on those psychological, therapeutic and social aspects that can contribute to this, as well as to develop actions and resources in the fields of clinical intervention in psychomotricity, relaxation, therapeutic analysis and education.

This special congress celebrates the 43rd anniversary of the Ciserpp. In this long period Ciserpp has trained more than 15 thousand professionals contributing to the development of psychomotricity as a discipline and profession. The anniversary stimulates reflection on the current state of psychomotricity in relation to the past and considering the needs of the person today and soon. For this reason, we should ask ourselves how psychomotricity can better understand human beings and how can psychomotricians deal with it, based on scientific supports.

In our constantly changing and ultra-rapid society, each professional must have the ability to identify the needs of people who ask for Psychomotricity. To this purpose we have appropriate, diversified, specific and scientifically rigorous methods and instruments of evaluation and intervention. With reference to the great pioneers who were the first speakers about Tonic-Emotional Dialogue, knowledge in Psychomotricity developed from the discovery to the confirmation of the central role of emotions in the constitution of people: the weaving of the first connections, the expression of the first forms of communication, the beginnings of adaptation to reality. In Psychomotricity, emotions are neither secondary nor negative but considered as a matter of evolution and expression. The aim of the interventions is then to facilitate their regulation, their harmonious expression, to promote the development and deployment of real and potential psychomotor skills. Currently, studies and research, whether medical or psycho-social, particularly those based on technologies and medical imaging, identify more and more finely the processes underlying the development of psychomotor synergies in connection with the regulation and balance of emotions. We therefore better understand psychomotor disorders as language, as an expression of the difficulties in situating oneself in the relationship to oneself and to others and in supporting the demands of the environment. This should result in direct and innovative applications to help people safeguard their psycho-corporal well-being. Psychomotricity is today a discipline able to contribute in an autonomous and specific way, without being isolated, to scientific research by creating professional evaluation and intervention instruments, capable of justifying the effectiveness of interventions of psychomotor therapists: specific methods and techniques aimed at creating and/or safeguarding the synergistic link between psychomotor functions for more autonomy, starting from the body mediating between the subject and reality.

The Students’ Academy of the EFP (https://psychomot.org/activities/students-academy/) is an exchange between European students of Psychomotricity usually organized by a group of students with the support of teachers and the EFP-delegate from the hosting county of that year. The main goals are the creation of relationships between students and teachers and the knowledge about study plans, education, schools and professional practices in the countries, where there is a specific education and professional activity.

In 2023, the Student Academy is planned as a Students’ Experience “StudEx” within the framework of the X World Congress of Psychomotricity, organized in Verone (Italy) by the EFP together with the OIPR and the CISERPP. It will be an occasion for meeting other students of Psychomotricity, to get to know each other, and to exchange knowledge on an international level. The official language is English.

StudEx is a great opportunity for students to meet other students AND to participate in the World Congress of Psychomotricity together with researchers, teachers and people working in practice in Psychomotricity. This is a chance to be a part of this event, to create international relationships and to become involved in international collaborations.
