Abstract

Heuristic research, as developed by Clark Moustakas (1990), focuses on an internal search of a particular construct, experience or phenomenon for an individual. Though similar to phenomenological inquiry, heuristic research has its own design, methodology and applications and is focused on the self. Such research often leads to self discovery and personal growth. Given the self reflective nature of heuristic methodology, it is uniquely suited for the study of occupation.

This presentation will provide an overview of the qualitative application of heuristic inquiry and suggested uses for occupational science. The author will present her own poetic and reflective writing, its meaning in her life, and heuristic application used to begin an ongoing process of inquiry into the occupation of reflective writing. The presentation will suggest possible application of heuristic research into the study of occupation, as well as areas for further study within the presented project.
