2020 Conference Now Virtual!

October 23

Mark your calendars for October 23. Our annual conference will feature Lisa Moore, LICSW, PhD, speaking on “Race, Black Bodies, and Psychodynamic Therapy.” The convening will explore how one identifies fear as it resides in those with power and will suggest approaches for addressing the effects of this fear in the context of clinical practice.

Lisa Moore, LICSW, PhD, speaker at 2020 Hamm Clinic Conference

Lisa Moore, LICSW, PhD, will keynote the Hamm Clinic’s October conference.

Dr. Lisa L. Moore is an Associate Professor of Social Work and Family Studies at St. Olaf College where she is the Director of Family Studies. Her scholarship addresses the intersections of race and psychoanalytic theory, and the use of auto-ethnography to explore the experiences of being a black adoptive mother. She has a particular interest in family relationships and policies in affordable and public housing and land retention.

Conference objectives:

  • Identify and distinguish presentation of mental health symptoms as responses to various forms of racism versus those emerging due to organic mental health concerns.
  • Identify the stages of dehumanization that shape dominant forms of oppression by individuals and institutions.
  • Discuss Frantz Fanon’s theories and the application of psychodynamic theories in clinical practice cross-racially.

The conference will also feature a special performance by poet, activist, and educator Kyle “Guante” Tran Myhre. His work explores the relationships between identity, power, and resistance. Guante strives to cultivate a deeper, more critical engagement with social justice issues, one based in both empathy and agency.
