Psychomotor Rehabilitation

Bachelor's Degree

Reabilitação Psicomotora

Course Overview

This degree course provides comprehensive training, incorporating knowledge from different branches (Human Kinetics, Social Sciences, Medical Sciences, Education Sciences) and training students in psychomotricity, adapted physical activity and social and functional autonomy.

The study plan provides a holistic view of a person, where psychomotricity incorporates cognitive, emotional, sensory, motor and symbolic interactions expressed in the development of the individual, their interaction with others and with the surrounding environment.

With a strong theoretical and practical component, this course helps students acquire and master the different techniques for assessment and psychomotor intervention (e.g. relaxation techniques, hydrotherapy, horse therapy) and to develop therapeutic attitudes and skills and ethical conduct.

Student learning culminates in supervised psychomotor practice, in partnership with external institutions, bringing students closer to the job market in the final year of the course.

Career Prospects

Healthcare (Paediatrics, Child Psychiatry and Psychiatry), Education (Nurseries, Kindergarten, Schools, Resource Centres for Inclusion and Psycho-Pedagogical Centres), Rehabilitation and Social Welfare (Social welfare associations, associations that care for people with disabilities, associations that support older people, seniors’ centres and long-term care facilities). 

The study plan was designed taking into account the Senior Psychomotor Rehabilitation Therapist profile defined in the Bulletin of Work and Employment published by the Ministry of Labour and Social Solidarity on 15/04/2011, and the basic training requirements (general psychomotor therapist) proposed by the European Psychomotricity Forum.
