The KMP profile was developed after years of observation of children and adults by Judith Kestenberg and her colleagues. Its structure and focus are based on the psychological profile developed by Anna Freud, with a strong emphasis on development. It uses the premise that if the mind, emotions, and body are a closely integrated , mutually interacting system, then it is reasonable that we should be able to gain information about the mind by observing the body. The body and its manner of moving not only reveals aspects of current feelings and emotions, but can give us insight into an individual’s past. Because both physical and emotional experiences leave long term traces upon the way people hold themselves and move, the study of movement opens a door to the study of patterns of early development, coping strategies and personality configurations. The KMP uses rhythms, shaping in planes, tension flow and efforts to help one gain insight into developmental frame works. It is used as a assessment tool, intervention and gives a way to describe the connection between body, feelings and developmental states.
