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 an international happiness psychologist and a leader in bridging science & spirit with THE NEW PSYCHOLOGY, waiting to be discovered by you, as her I CAN HEAL® Framework, the culmination of 20 years of her life’s passion, scientifically bridges psychology and spirituality! Dr. Treynor is a next-generation teacher, author, speaker, coach, healer and scholar gone global who, using the needle and thread of logic, 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 and Happiness 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 Influence 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 yourself, your team, celebrating diversity and promoting inclusion, and even ending social problems like school bullying, international terrorism, wartime atrocities, institutional corruption, gang-violence, and more, as Dr. Wendy presents a new framework, 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.
Dr. Wendy founded Healing Consulting in 2007 and became a Visiting Scholar at the Institute for Social Research at UCLA in 2009-2010, after receiving a Social Psychology Ph.D. from a top program in her field in her country (University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, 2004; today ranking #1 in her country according to US News & World Report, as of 2022). Her honors and awards include: Who’s Who Among America’s Teachers (2005), Delta Epsilon Iota for Academic Excellence and Outstanding Dedication, Enthusiasm, and Initiative (2003), Hough Psychology & Ethics Scholarship for Promising Psychology and Ethics Research (2003), Pi Mu Epsilon for Outstanding Achievement in the Mathematical Sciences (1997), and Acceptance to NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts (1993) for dramatic study. Most recently she is a recipient of The Hay Foundation Grant (2008) and The Lloyd Symington Foundation Grant (2009), which have sponsored some of her I CAN HEAL® programs. Her scientific article on depression and rumination has been cited 4,000 times (on Google Scholar, which she published with co-authors Richard Gonzalez & Susan Nolen-Hoeksema) and she has been featured as a happiness expert on CBS-TV and also writes for PSYCHOLOGY TODAY® on her blog: Identity Shift: When the Need to Belong Goes Awry (see: Why People Become Sheeple: Why We Unknowingly Compromise Ourselves under Social Pressure). Lastly, she is in SUCCESS MAGAZINE for her research and book on happiness (see: http://www.success.com/article/how-to-break-the-pattern-of-dwelling-on-past-mistakes).
