The purpose of this study was to investigate the meaning of psychomotricity in rehabilitation sports education and to derive the attitudes and roles of psychomotricians as rehabilitation sports leaders.
In order to accomplish the purpose of this study, data were collected through interviews using open semi-structured questionnaires for ten psychomotor experts and lecturers from the Korean Psychomotricians Association. The collected data were analyzed by the inductive content analysis. We also conducted peer-to-peer meetings to combine core topics and sub-content to derive research findings.
The results of this study are finalized with the three challenging issues: “the meaning of psychomotricity in rehabilitation sports”, "psychomotor programs in rehabilitation sports", and “the attitudes and roles of psychomotricians”. This study also presents the roles of psychomotricians as a rehabilitation athletic leader. We expect that the results of this study promote the true meaning of psychomotricity and roles of psychomotricians in rehabilitation sports. We also expect that psychomotricians can act as rehabilitation athletic leaders, contributing to the development of Korean psychomotricity.
