This study examines the historical traditions within design approaches and how the field of design have changed from a user-centered approach to a participatory design approach.
Furthermore, this study examines the definition of participatory design, what it is and how participation in participatory design is conceptualized. By researching and experiencing first hand practices surrounding body oriented therapeutic exercises this study examines the psychological aspect of contact quality and collective learning between participants. This study aims to provide an understanding of why a self aware authentic approach encourages and expands the continuum of participation described as genuine participation. Rather than alienation a concept of communicative contact quality seeks to unite participants and designers as equals in the design process.
