Psychologists from around the world
are convening at Seattle University for the 29th International
Human Science Research Conference on August 4. Grounded in phenomenology, the
study of how people perceive and interpret events, psychologists and other
human scientists will report on qualitative research and emerging theory
related to how children and adults respond in a wide variety of situations,
including trauma, childbirth, and forced migration. Interdisciplinary and
cross-cultural approaches are included in presentations of theory, philosophy,
methodology, education, and psychotherapy.
According to Psychology Professor Kevin Krycka, co-director
of this year’s conference, “Human science research is probably the richest
source of new knowledge regarding how we experience our life. It impacts
architecture, religion, philosophy, psychology, economics, in fact any place or
situation you find humans."
More than 170 leading academics and private practitioners
are expected to attend.
