With warmth and humor, as both storyteller and scholar, entertainer and expert, Dr. Wendy Treynor inspires us to overcome perceived obstacles and live up to our true potential as she shares findings from ground-breaking research in Social Psychology that lead to some surprising conclusions. Her presentation inspires hearts and enlightens minds everywhere–now free to feel and see the possibilities where none before existed!
Dr. Wendy Treynor is a next-generation speaker, author, coach, healer and teacher gone global who bridges psychology and spirituality, weaving science and spirit. A wisdom-keeper with insight into how the peer pressure process works as it relates to why we unknowingly compromise ourselves under social pressure, leading us to betray our hearts and conscience, Dr. Wendy is a happiness and social influence expert who holds a PhD in Social Psychology from the #1 ranked program in the U.S. (US News & World Report, 2017: U. Michigan, Ann Arbor) as well as being a teacher of love & self-love and workplace-bullying-survivor-turned-social-scientist-and-thought-leader on being true to you and happiness. A cancer survivor and thriver, she has presented worldwide for over 10 years, including recently at Google.
Using the needle and thread of logic, Dr. Treynor wove foundational social scientific research “patches” together into an overarching “quilt” of understanding, which unintentionally, mirrors the tenets of spiritual truth, providing you with healing self-insight so you can live your happiest life! In her retreats, keynotes, and training programs, Dr. Treynor presents I CAN HEAL®: A Revolutionary New Framework for Self-Healing based on social psychological principles she uncovered, standing on the shoulders of giants in her field. These principles include the Identity Shift Effect explanation of the peer pressure process, the Social Environment Explanation of Depression, and the Self-Love Solution to Depression. The transformative understanding she shares represent a weaving of science and spirit, presenting the world with a new self-healing paradigm that has the potential to transform, uplift, and heal the lives of millions.
Once you hear Dr. Wendy Treynor’s research-based teaching, you have the key to empowering your team, yourself, and even ending social problems like school bullying, international terrorism, wartime atrocities, corporate corruption, gang-violence, and more, as Dr. Wendy presents a new paradigm, grounded in social science, which inspires us to remember the truth of who we are and all that is, revealing what lies at the heart of both outer and inner conflict–and how to end it.
In addition to uplifting hearts and enlightening minds, Dr. Treynor can empathize with any audience, as a depression survivor-turned happiness expert and cancer survivor who formerly wanted to end her own life, for lack of being able to see or feel the possibilities. She even wished for cancer as an “easy exit route,” and her wish came true, emancipating her to discover true happiness–an unending joy that can only come from within–as detailed in her Gift of Cancer book and talk: “A Treasure Map to Happiness®! Now she shares her treasure map to happiness with your audience, so they, too, can feel the love and joy they are.
