one day conference features phenomenological and other forms of qualitative
research that have implications for therapeutic practice. Registration deadline is April
9 for presenters and April 18 for participants.
conference showcases phenomenological and other forms of qualitative research
in a forum of learning and dialogue.
Those working in the field of mental health, education, and psychology,
as well as graduate students from Seattle University and other programs are
invited to attend. We believe that therapists can greatly benefit from
qualitative research that gives us a deeper understanding of various human
experiences, such as despair, living with back pain, and having difficult
conversations about money.
year we will have a special event as part of the conference: a jazz trio
consisting of bass player Nate Omdal, pianist Michael Owcharuk and drummer, Max
Wood, will do a demonstration improvisation for us and discuss the role of
inspiration and improvisation in their performance. We are including this event
not just because it is enjoyable to listen to jazz but because we want to
highlight the role inspiration and improvisation plays in qualitative research.

All submissions will be evaluated by the conference planning
committee. Criteria for selection:

abstract will also be evaluated on the basis of its coherence and clarity.3) It
should fall within the orientations described, above. 4) Presentations
that are primarily theoretical or based on clients’ cases will not be accepted.5) Papers
based on previous presentations are welcome as are presentations with multiple
research topics are welcome.7)
The presentation should address both method and findings, but
presenters are welcome to place the emphasis as they see fit. Since

include reference to these themes if they were part of your research process. 8) Briefly
point to the therapeutic relevance of your research9) Make
sure you state your affiliation next to your name (e.g., graduate student in
psychology at University of Connecticut).
