1 Intensive Program Zürich August 2012 Group Dynamics SPACE Manja Flammild, Studies of Relaxation and Psychomotor Therapy, VIA University College, Denmark 1

2 Agenda Theory (Space - Rudolph Laban) Practical exercises (YOU in focus) Reflexions (own experiences - wider perspective) Group work (relate to PMT in your country) This workshop will give inspiration for further absorption Body – Perception - Action Manja Flammild, Studies of Relaxation and Psychomotor Therapy, VIA University College, Denmark 2

3 About group dynamics exploring dynamic processes and conditions which is basis for the rise of social groups, their changes, their developement etc.(Lewin ´s) always changing – many factors Any group is like a puzzle – everyone contribute to the group and can affect the group Each individuel can develope by beeing a part of a group – finding new ressources in one self Manja Flammild, Studies of Relaxation and Psychomotor Therapy, VIA University College, Denmark 3

4 Why talking about group dynamics in Psychomotor Therapy Manja Flammild, Studies of Relaxation and Psychomotor Therapy, VIA University College, Denmark 4 In PMT teaching groups is a major factor Every teaching lesson includes a network of roles, relations, hierakies and expectations Group teaching can start physical, psysical and social processes (Body Awareness) – important that the PMT is aware of this (avoid unappropiate consequences and stimulate appropriate consequenses) Observations of the partipants can give insight that use can use deliberate in your didactics – and help developing social competences in each participant Many different groups of people – different goals with the PMT

5 General observations of dynamic processes – PMT Manja Flammild, Studies of Relaxation and Psychomotor Therapy, VIA University College, Denmark 5 Body language How do the participants relate to each other How is the atmosphere – the emotionel foundation How is the group in general Reserved / introvert Openminded Angry Superficial Does anyone ”speak” to anyone or is their small groups(cliques)

6 What happens here? Manja Flammild, Studies of Relaxation and Psychomotor Therapy, VIA University College, Denmark 6 6

7 Rudolph Laban Man move in order to satisfy a need (Laban) Born in Bratislava, Hungary 1879 Understand how man expresses him self (thoughts, feelings, needs) Everyone has his/hers graceful natural movement but this is often ”destroyed” by every day life ( childhood etc) Notation system - observations of dancers movement – finding mans potential and develope mans expression BESS concept – a system to observe patterns/habits in mans movement Manja Flammild, Studies of Relaxation and Psychomotor Therapy, VIA University College, Denmark 7

8 Laban and Psychomotricity Manja Flammild, Studies of Relaxation and Psychomotor Therapy, VIA University College, Denmark 8 Man has a choice of movement and we can change or adapt our movement behaviour at will (Newlove) The first step is to learn how to become aware (Salter)

9 BESS concept - observations Manja Flammild, Studies of Relaxation and Psychomotor Therapy, VIA University College, Denmark 9 Change of shape/form in the movement How is the movement in space Personal space Generel space The intention behind the movement Space, time, weight, flow The quality of movement Active bodyparts in the movement? BODYEFFORT SHAPESPACE

10 SPACE - by Laban WHERE are we going in space (not a vacuum) HOW are we going WHAT kind of movement energy Manja Flammild, Studies of Relaxation and Psychomotor Therapy, VIA University College, Denmark 10

11 Personal space Manja Flammild, Studies of Relaxation and Psychomotor Therapy, VIA University College, Denmark 11 The kinesphere The space within reach of the body Dimensional cross Movement can be done in: Levels: low, middle, high Plans: vertical, sagital, horisontal Zones: closest, middle, outer

12 Manja Flammild, Studies of Relaxation and Psychomotor Therapy, VIA University College, Denmark 12

13 General space Manja Flammild, Studies of Relaxation and Psychomotor Therapy, VIA University College, Denmark 13 The general space surrounding your personal space You bring your personal space with you in the general space The way you move in the general space is depending on both physical ans psycical aspects – you move to satisfy a need

14 Manja Flammild, Studies of Relaxation and Psychomotor Therapy, VIA University College, Denmark 14 ? How can we use the theory of SPACE in PMT ?

15 SPACE and Body Awareness Awareness of SPACE helps developing: Body awareness Physical,psychical and social kompetences Authenticity Bodily security & self asteem Secure relations A suitable behaviour in a proffession that include contact with other people (fx PMT) Manja Flammild, Studies of Relaxation and Psychomotor Therapy, VIA University College, Denmark 15

16 Observations of SPACE due to dynamic processes - PMT Manja Flammild, Studies of Relaxation and Psychomotor Therapy, VIA University College, Denmark 16 How is the movement in the general space (the room where the teaching is) For the group? For each individual? How is the movement in the personal space (levels, zones, plans,dimensions) For the group? For each individual? Be aware of interpretations/conclusions ! What is the goal(s) of the lesson? What to do?

17 Didactics Manja Flammild, Studies of Relaxation and Psychomotor Therapy, VIA University College, Denmark 17 What do you want? (purpose) Why do you want this? (reason) How will you get there? (method)

18 The method Through body exercises in psychomotor therapy you can affect mans use of space (games, free movement, strecthing, exercises in pairs etc.) Doing something else will awake the participant and bring curiosity Building a safe frame will encourage the individual to work with challenging stuff Always remember that the first step is to become aware (through bodily experiences) Manja Flammild, Studies of Relaxation and Psychomotor Therapy, VIA University College, Denmark 18

19 Affecting the group dynamics Manja Flammild, Studies of Relaxation and Psychomotor Therapy, VIA University College, Denmark 19 Use your observations to affect the group dynamics by starting exercises which goes in another direction – Examples: A splitted group – unifying movement exercises A reserved group – exercises that open up /icebreakers An angry group – exercises that stimulate the heart/ loyality A Group that is afraid of confrontations – confronting exercises A group which members only move in their personal spaces – exercises that focus on the general space A group which members have a bad contact with themselves and focus on everyone else – exercises that focus on the personal space What more ????

22 The professional role Manja Flammild, Studies of Relaxation and Psychomotor Therapy, VIA University College, Denmark 22 Be aware of how you as a PMT use Space while you are teaching groups (clients) WHY? HOW?
