Seminars for Practicing Clinicians

Hamm Clinic's annual Seminar Series offers clinicians in training at Hamm Clinic, and clinicians practicing in the community, the opportunity to explore issues in a didactic format that incorporates clinical examples. Issues include; underlying emotional processes, the nature of the therapeutic relationship, and practical approaches to working with human behavior and emotions. Seminars are taught by Hamm Clinic staff unless otherwise indicated.

The current seminars are described below. The cost of each seminar is $60.00. The student rate is $20.00. Clinicians may attend one or any number of seminars with advance registration. All seminars are held on Thursdays at Hamm Clinic in the Hamm Building in downtown St. Paul from 8:30 – 11:30 a.m.


In the event that a seminar topic, date or presenter is changed, registered participants will be notified in advance.

Application for Three CEUs for each seminar is being completed. They will be made available for Psychology and Social Work.
