On this registration page, you can also register for our pre-conference workshop on phenomenological analysis featuring Frederick J. Wertz.

A pre-conference workshop will be offered on the afternoon of May 20th:

Doing Phenomenological Analysis in Psychology: Experiences of Schizophrenic Persons in a Community with an After-Care Program Frederick J. Wertz Fordham University

This workshop will introduce participants to the phenomenological research tradition with specific focus on the core features used in philosophy and across human science disciplines. Participants will be guided through the procedures of phenomenological psychological analysis using data from an action research project exploring the lived experiences of persons diagnosed with schizophrenia in a community recovery program.

More information about the pre-conference workshop can be found here. The workshop will cost $30, with a discounted rate of $20 for students.

Block rates for our Cambria Suites room block ended May 7th; however, you can still reserve rooms there at the regular rate.

We are no longer accepting reservations for on-campus housing, or for dinner out on Sunday night, as those spots have filled. If you’d like help finding a comfortable, fun place to stay in Pittsburgh, please email us at

Duquesne’s uniquely long and distinguished tradition of qualitative, interpretive, meaning-centered and philosophically-grounded inquiry in psychology as a human science will provide a rich background for our conference. Pittsburgh is a thriving and vibrant city in the midst of rapid growth – much like our qualitative psychology community itself.

We look forward to seeing you in Pittsburgh in May!
