INPM Summer Institute 2019

Paul T.P. Wong, PhD
presented by International Network on Personal Meaning

Trauma is any experience that overwhelms us physically, psychologically, or spiritually, with long-term debilitating consequences if left untreated. A broad range of psychological disorders are rooted in trauma.

At the Summer Institute, Dr. Paul Wong will lead an intensive two-day workshop on Transforming Trauma to Resilience through Meaning Therapy, July 20-21, 2019 at Novotel Hotel, North York, Ontario, Canada. On-site seating is limited. This workshop will also be available via an online interactive livestream. It is suitable for all mental health professionals and first responders. Participants receive a certificate of completion and, as an option, 12.0 CPA-approved CE credits.

INPM’s Summer Institute is an intensive two-day workshop built on evidence-based meaning interventions, equipping mental health professionals with innovative tools that empower clients to recover from trauma and become more resilient. It is hosted biennially by the International Network on Personal Meaning and Meaning-Centered Counselling Institute Inc.

Meaning therapy—an integration of Viktor Frankl’s logotherapy with cognitive behavioural therapy and second wave positive psychology (PP 2.0)—is based on scientific research and existential insights. It makes optimal use of clients’ innate capabilities for meaning-seeking and meaning-making. Meaning therapy emphasizes the basic human need for meaning, relationships, and faith: the golden triangle for positive mental health. This workshop will teach dialectic and paradoxical interventions, which foster post-traumatic growth. Learn more about meaning therapy at

This is a rare opportunity to learn from Paul T. P. Wong, Ph.D., C.Psych., clinical psychologist, founder of integrative meaning therapy, and an internationally renowned leader in positive psychology.

Dr. Wong’s decades of scientific research and clinical experience in integrating different therapeutic modalities in treating trauma, painful memories, and troubling emotions inform his five modules of intervention strategies: Resource-Congruence Model, PURE, ABCDE, Dual-Systems Model, and Double-Vision Strategy. His teachings on the core principles and practices of healing and flourishing through meaning have influenced both researchers and practitioners globally through his numerous publications, keynote presentations, and workshops.

Lilian C. J. Wong, Ph.D., R.P. will assist in leading group discussions and exercises. Dr. Wong is Vice-President of the Meaning-Centered Counselling Institute Inc. and a seasoned registered psychotherapist.

At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

Identify types of trauma (shock, intergenerational, relational, racial).
Describe the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and characteristics of post-traumatic growth (PTG).
Understand how trauma changes one’s brain and personality as well as causes at-risk health behaviours.
Learn how to counteract the brain’s negative bias by building the neural circuitry of response flexibility.
Work with clients to improve their self-regulation, positive self-identity, and resilience through dialectic and paradoxical interventions (e.g., taming painful emotions by naming them, developing resilience through accepting vulnerabilities).
Apply second wave positive psychology principles (e.g., bringing out the best in people by repairing the worst) to improve health outcomes and enhance resilience.
How to incorporate the past into the present and future through improving relationships and meaning reconstruction.
This is an intermediate level workshop for psychologists, counsellors, social workers, coaches, health care professionals, first responders, and educators.

The workshop will include presentations, live demonstrations, exercises, role play, and group discussions, both on-site and via the interactive online livestream.
