Training Aims

The aim of the Movement in Practice Facilitator Training  programme is for you to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to develop a Movement in Practice Implementation Plan that can be applied in your own professional setting to enhance human experiences.

For example, you might apply it in a business setting to enhance teamwork, productivity or creativity, or in an education setting to improve focus and problem-solving, or in a healthcare setting to improve physical or emotional well-being.

Across your training programme we will focus on three core skills: 1. The evidence-base which underlies the Psychology of Movement. 2. Practical Techniques for engaging people with the Psychology of Movement 3. The development of your Movement in Practice Implementation Plan.

We believe this is the perfect combination of evidence, technique and implementation skills that are necessary to enable you to create and deliver Movement in Practice interventions.

When you move, you improve

The Movement in Practice Facilitator Training Programme was developed, and is taught by, Psychologist, Dr Peter Lovatt & Occupational Therapist, Lindsey Lovatt.
The Movement in Practice Facilitator Training Programme is based on the Psychology of Movement. It consists of three stages.

In Stage 1 of the Movement in Practice Facilitator Training Programme you will learn:

A Basic Introduction to the Psychology of Movement – providing key definitions of psychology and placing movement at the heart of human experiences within education, health and business environments.

The Science of Movement and Psychology – providing an overview of a 4 STEP approach of research which links movement with psychological processes.

Pause and Reflect Activities and Active Learning Exercises – Following the introduction of each topic, you will either complete a Pause and Reflect Activity or an Active Learning Exercise.

Dance Breaks – A simple 4-part dance routine is taught a regular intervals during the module. The Dance Break is literally to give you a quick movement break, time out from studying and to keep your mind and body working together harmoniously.
