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.

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.
