1. Studies in psychomotricity – Mathilde Gavalda

Translated by Audrey Athlan-Liénard


The psychomotricity is a paramedical profession as well as physiotherapy, speech therapy, etc.

The concept of psychomotricity reflects the constant connection between the body and psyche, two entities that were often thought separately.

The interest in psychomotricity and recognition of its effectiveness led to the creation of state psychomotrician diploma in 1974 and a decree of competence (attachment). The state diploma is required to exercise. The psychomotrician comes in screening, prevention and treatment of psychomotor disorders.


As in medicine or pharmacy, there is a numerus clausus limiting the passages in the first year. Access to psychomotor studies is indeed conditioned by the success of an entrance examination (including a biology test and a French test) organized by each Training Schools and reserved to holders of the Baccalaureate.


Several training centers, public and private, exist in France, two in Paris, Lyon, Toulouse, Bordeaux, Lille, Marseille and Les Mureaux (78) recently.


The training lasts three years. It includes the acquisition of knowledge in anatomy, physiology, neurophysiology, pediatric but also in teaching, clinical and experimental psychology, psychiatry and psychomotricity. In parallel, a practical education is provided in order to understand the concepts of touch, relaxation, mediation, listening while developing a better awareness of our body and of the report to the body in the care.
