ISRP has been the world leader in Psychomotor Therapy (PMT) for over 50 years. ISRP created the first PMT school in 1967 and widely contributed to get this therapy recognized by the French Ministry of Health (MOH). The Institute also developed PMT in over 25 countries through OIPR (International Organization of PMT) and has trained half of the French PMTs, and through partnerships, about a quarter of those professionals worldwide. Today, ISRP is the largest PMT school both in France, and in the world. More than 1200 students are trained at ISRP on 3 campuses (Paris, Marseille and Vichy), and about 300 professionals follow continuing education programs. All of ISRP’s diplomas are recognized by the Ministry of Education, at a Bachelor and Master level. As research is key, ISRP hosts both a research lab, and a research foundation, the latter being under the “Fondation de France”, the country’s most important national research foundation.
