NPSA Congress – Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel 2023
The 22nd Annual Congress of the International Neuropsychoanalysis Society
The Social Mind and Brain
The concept of PLAY is usually related to games and enjoyment, but in fact it is a biological need.
PLAY in its neuropsychoanalytic meaning — based on theory, research and clinical practice — is one of the brain’s emotional drives, which greatly influences our:
– personality and lives
– contact with others
– integration into society
– relation with in-groups and out-groups, hierarchy, and power
and is also related to developing empathy.
The Congress will present new connections between the various aspects: theoretical perspectives, clinical reflections, and social group perspectives, which will contribute to better understanding of the concept and our practical work.
This Congress will be of value to all in the field, and we look forward to welcoming participants both locally and internationally.
