“PSYCOR” system of psychomotor correction through the prism of Biosynthesis (masterclass)
Technology or Contact? Should we choose between the two or is it more important to find the balance? We, as specialists, quite often choose technology, master the skills, follow the rules strictly, stick to the protocol and learnt techniques. No matter how sophisticated technology is, how well we know it and how precisely we apply it, it can fail, be inefficient. In the work with children in psycho-correctional approach the preference is most often given to technology. However, it is quite obvious that there are necessary and sufficient conditions for the efficiency of any correctional and therapeutical process. Technology is just one of the necessary conditions. Compliance with only this condition limits any kind of approach. What can make the work with a child more complete, holistic and enhance the result? I find it working in Biosynthesis approach, following its main principles. One of them is the art of making contact as well as the quality of contact and the resource of contact. And in most cases a contact really overweighs a tonne of techniques. I would like to offer you to get acquainted with PSYCOR System, which is the integration of neuropsychological and body-oriented approaches, as well as to have some practical experience.
