What’s in the Course?
The Psychology of Movement is concerned with understanding the relationship between human movement and its affect on a range of psychological characteristics. The psychological characteristics examined in this course are: Social, Cognitive, Emotional and Physical. This course is focused around four key questions:
To what extent can movement enhance aspects of social interaction?
To what extent can movement change the way the people think and solve problems?
Theory and Application
Each session will be focused around a particular research or theory paper. Students will have read the paper prior to the session and the paper will be presented and discussed by the group. The aim of this element of the course is to foster an understanding of current theoretical and methodological approaches to the psychology of movement and of how these affect the way the knowledge base is interpreted.
During each session we will move from theory to application by discussing how the theoretical concepts and research findings can be applied in business, education, health and or social care settings. The aim of this element of the course is to develop a deep and systematic understanding within this specialised field of study and its interrelationship with other relevant disciplines.
