Psychodrama conferences for children and young people already have a long tradition. It started in the German-speaking countries with conferences in Austria, Germany, and Switzerland. Since 2018, the conference has been held in English and has already taken place in Hungary and Croatia. According to the motto of the working function of the brain “neurons that fire together wire together”, the communities of psychodramatists working with children and youth became larger and larger. The fact that we want to explore the brain and the positive effects of play is due to many years of practical experience. The play is a state where adult humans would like to be and children should be. Human beings (Children) play when they feel relaxed and relax when they play and can develop and flourish in this state. In order to develop the brain arias responsible for higher-order cognitive functions, children need rich playful experience. Play helps the brain to wire from the lower brain structures (brain-stem, responsible for physiological reactions) to the limbic system (emotional center of the brain) and
to the cerebral cortex (involved in learning, monitoring, thinking, executive functions, etc.). Since the brain mechanisms responsible for guiding play are probably the one that benefits from the play, we would like to explore the connection between brain and play in the context of psychodrama with children and youth during our conference.
