Have you always wanted to learn how to do Consensual Qualitative Research (CQR), but never have the opportunity to do so? Well, now is your chance!

The best way to learn CQR is to do it. In this experiential workshop, we will guide participants through each of the steps of CQR. Prior to the conference, participants will interviewed by telephone using a semi-structured interview protocol (topic is yet to be determined, but will be relevant to psychotherapy). The interview will be transcribed prior to the workshop, providing us with data to be analyzed during the workshop. Day 1 will focus on domains and core ideas; Day 2 morning will focus on cross-analysis. For each of these three time periods, we will define the construct and work on a case together as a large group, and then break into sub-groups to work on the remaining cases. In the final time period (Day 2 afternoon), we will discuss other CQR-relevant topics (e.g., interview protocols, ethics, research teams, qualitative meta-analysis).

The hosts of the conference are Clara Hill ( and Sarah Knox ( In addition, John Jackson, Melissa Jones, Katherine Kline, Graham Knowlton, Kristen Pinto-Coelho, Nate Pruitt, Wonjin Sim, Pat Spangler, Barbara Thompson, Barbara Vivino, and Libby Williams, all of whom are highly experienced in CQR, will join us to serve as co-leaders for the break-out subgroups.

Participants will be expected to bring a laptop for use throughout the workshop. Participants are also asked to read chapters 1 - 15 of Hill, C. E. (Ed.). (2012). Consensual qualitative research: A practical resource for investigating social science phenomena. APA Books.

Registration is limited because of the intensive experiential nature of the workshop. Please register early so that we can contact you to set up an interview. Registration closes 10/1/17. Registration fee does not include meals.

Participants who complete the entire workshop will earn 14 continuing education credits (via our coordination with APA’s Division 29, Psychotherapy). Cost of the CEs is included in the registration fee.
