About conference

The International Conference of Psychomotricity was originally realized as a workshop for a small group of students of psychomotricity in Belgium and educational programs at Faculty of Education Jan Evangelista Purkyne University in Usti nad Labem in Czech Republic. The first edition was implemented in 2009. The main organizators were dr. Milena Adámková – Ségard, doc. Bela Hátlová from the Department of Psychology UJEP and prof. Michel Probst from KU Leuven in Belgium. It was a major international collaboration that significantly influenced the development of psychomotricity and psychomotor therapy in the country. Over the years, the conference came to the attention of other professionals, particularly physiotherapists from psychiatric hospitals. The conference began to be interested more and more people from the Czech Republic and abroad. Since 2012, the organization took over dr. Tereza Louková from the Department of Psychology UJEP. in years 2014 – 2017 the conference had become a part of the project PsychPAT, which deals with physical activity in psychiatric patient’s tretament in the Czech Republic and Norway. It was set up a close cooperation with the Norwegian School of Sports Sciences (NSSS) in Oslo, which has been the research center in this issue for many years.
At the conference, you can listen to a variety of theoretical lectures from the field and participate in practical workshops that are always experientially focused. The aim of the conference is to disseminate basic ideas of psychomotricity according to EFP (European Forum of psychomotricity) deepen awareness of the positive effects of natural movement on the psyche of the entire population, inspire and support participants in their work to prepare the land and space for sharing experiences, experiences in the areas of work and personal development.

Nowadays we covered with the contributions three main areas of interest:

  1. Education
  2. Psychiatry
  3. Personal development.

During conference you can be in touch with the use of movement and physical activity in all three areas, which are connected together. We hope, that everybody can find his/her field of interest.
