Have you been in touch with Psychomotricity for some time and thinking about training as a psychomotrician? Keep reading and find out why our graduate diploma is the training you're looking for!

  • Because Psychomotricity at the UAB is a standard setter in Spain. Did you know our university was the first to contemplate Psychomotricity in initial teacher training for early childhood education, in the 70s? 
  • Because at the UAB we have our own unique understanding of Psychomotricity, based on constant improvement through research and self-assessment on the part of the whole teaching staff. We vouch for a cross-cutting Psychomotricity that feeds off other disciplines and a diversity of materials, and is present in all the school's spaces and timetabling. 
  • Because, since 1999, we have accompanied over 450 persons in their training as psychomotricians.
  • Because our teaching staff is made up of impassioned Psychomotricity professionals with a long track record as psychomotricians.
  • And finally, because we offer the three components that are needed in the training of psychomotricians: theory, practice and adult body techniques. 

This graduate diploma is for different professionals in education: broadening the content and competences in psychomotricity acquired in initial training. 

We will give you the tools needed to teach Psychomotricity both in the two early childhood education cycles (0-3 and 3-6 years) and in the first cycle of primary education (6-8 years). These are the ages when children express themselves as whole individuals and when the professionals guiding their development must focus on companionship, close observation and listening, adapting to each child. 

You will develop these attitudes through practical work and specific techniques for your own body.
