The Psychology of Movement Tutorial Programme with Psychologist, Dr Peter Lovatt & Occupational Therapist, Lindsey Lovatt.

The Aims

The aim of the tutorial 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 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. 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. The perfect combination of evidence, technique and implementation.

I felt quite emotional at the end. It was wonderful to see all the diverse applications that people were planning; to dance after each one was a fabulous reminder of the journey that we have been on together. I have learnt so much during the 8 weeks, it has impacted on my everyday practice as well as inspiring me to look at developing new programmes to help the mental health of my cliental.

Thank you so much Peter & Lindsey

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:

Theory and Application

The focus of this course is on studying the psychology of movement from key academic research and theory papers, and then thinking about how this knowledge can be applied in Business, Education, Health and Social Care settings.

Theory

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.

Application

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Psychology of Movement Tutorial Programme is based on the model of small group supervision, where we discuss, present and think about the application of theory and research in business, education, health and social care settings. The settings we discuss will be based on the specific interests of tutees.

There will be eight 2-hour tutorial sessions plus each tutee will have the opportunity to engage in up to four one-to-one sessions with the teaching team.

The tutorials and one-to-one sessions will take place over Zoom.

The tutorial sessions are limited to a maximum of 8 tutees

For the 2021 cohort, tutorials take place weekly during the 2021 Michaelmas term.

For the 2022 cohort tutorials take place weekly during the 2022 Winter term (starting January).

For the 2021 cohort – Tutorials take place on Thursdays at 11am (UK time) and the first tutorial will take place on Thursday 30th September 2021

Theory sessions will be led by Dr Peter Lovatt and will focus on the critical analysis and evaluation of key research and/or theory papers in the psychology of movement. These sessions will take a problem-solving approach and the endpoint of each session will be focused on how the psychology of movement can be applied in the real world.

Applied sessions will be lead by Lindsey Lovatt and will focus on how to develop movement based programmes. Sessions will include applied practical techniques, groupwork skills, focus on over-coming barriers to development and support in planning a movement based programme.

Assessment

Successful completion of the course requires attendance at, and engagement with, 6 out of 8 tutorial sessions and the submission of a Movement in Practice Implementation Plan. At the end of the course students will receive a Movement in Practice Certificate of Completion.
The Movement in Practice Implementation Plan is a document which describes how you would use principles of Movement in Practice to address particular aspects of the human experience in a setting that is relevant to you. For example, you might draw up a Movement in Practice Implementation Plan to address toxic levels of low motivation in the workplace, or to encourage critical thinking in an educational setting, or to increase engagement with a well-being initiative in a health setting or to reduce feelings of isolation in a social care setting.
