Réflexion sur la prévention de risques psychosociaux en entreprise : quelle place pour la psychomotricité ?

Abstract : The growing concern for psychosocial risks shows how the working life quality is a key factor of individual and collective health. In order to address these risks, companies have to implement prevention programs. However, specific answers are difficult to find as psychosocial risks remain hard to define. Coming from the society’s founding principles, their determinisms question employees’ corporeality. The commonly accepted "body/spirit" distinction is harmful and is actually taking over a more holistic approach, meaningful for humans. The working organization constrains the employees who have to engage personal resources in order to adapt themselves and fit in. Because of the lack of space given to the resilient body, these personal resources are not always efficient. As humans develop themselves through their sensory-motricity, which gives them the strength to cope with situation of hardship, self-discovery through body movements could be a solution regarding this problematic. The purpose of this essay is therefore to analyze the role of a potential psychomotricity preventive practice and particularly to discuss how psychomotricity could be a part of psychosocial risks prevention plan inside companies. Looking at the data gathered by researchers in work and organizational psychology and at the present state of knowledge in psychomotricity, the field of action of psychomotricity might need to be reconsidered. Is this the beginning of a new era for psychomotricity?
