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!
With PhD in Social Psychology from the #1 ranked program in the U.S. (US News & World Report, 2017: U. Michigan, Ann Arbor), Dr. Wendy Treynor is a teacher of love & self-love, cancer survivor, and workplace bullying survivor-turned social scientist and thought leader on being true to you and happiness.
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, and the Social Environment Explanation of and Self-Love Solution to Depression. The transformative understanding she shares represents 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.
As a depression survivor-turned happiness expert who formerly wanted to end her own life, for lack of being able to see or feel the possibilities, Dr. Treynor can empathize with any audience. 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®!
The deep understanding she shares allowed her to escape depression without psychotherapy, anti-depressants, or shock therapy, as evidenced by her own life-turnaround healing from depression and cancer, where she applied what she knew scientifically to her own life. Now she shares her treasure map to happiness with your audience, so they, too, can reclaim their health, happiness, and wholeness by feeling the love and joy they are!
Dr. Treynor’s heartfelt wish is that all people will ultimately “cure their own depression” with self-love, either by reading or hearing her story. Those in her audience who are cancer survivors can potentially double their lifespan, as cancer survivors without depression live twice as long, whereas cancer survivors with depression live only half as long (credit goes to Dr. Kelly A. Turner for this statistic).
1) contents of Dr. Treynor’s book The Gift of Cancer have been proven to be helpful for overcoming depression, in so far as everyone (100% of people) in a study said they would give the book to friends struggling with depression
2) contents of Dr. Treynor’s book The Gift of Cancer have been scientifically proven to make people significantly happier
3) Dr. Treynor’s talk The Gift of Cancer (also known as A Treasure Map to Happiness!) has been scientifically proven to increase love of life, which means, simply by hearing Dr. Treynor speak, your group will be experiencing a live form of one of New York Times Bestselling Author Dr. Kelly A. Turner’s radical remission healing factors. (This particular study was run in 2010 with funding from The Lloyd Symington Foundation.)
Furthermore, you can see that Dr. Treynor is a depression scholar: Her 2003 depression article (with colleagues Richard Gonzalez and the belated Susan Nolen-Hoeksema) in a peer-reviewed journal has 1,154 citations and counting (see depression article called ruminationreconsidered03 and count on Google Scholar).
Lastly, with Dr. Wendy Treynor as your speaker, you receive a rare mix of story and scholarship, entertainment and inspiration, knowledge and wisdom, science and spirit, mind and heart, leaving your group with a fresh perspective on life as well as love for it!
