This is not your typical Meetup group. It is not intended for those who only want to meet new people. This Meetup is designed for those who are interested in learning how to have more happiness and meaning in their lives.
As the education arm of the International Network on Personal Meaning (INPM; www.meaning.ca), our Meaningful Living Group will offer two streams of courses:
(1) The professional courses will lead to certificates and diplomas, leading to Registration with the forthcoming College of Psychotherapists in Ontario. The courses will be taught by such distinguished professors as Dr. Paul T. P. Wong, Dr. Lilian C. J. Wong, Dr. Brent Potter, and Dr. Robert Neimeyer. We will charge a tuition fee per course. Meetup members will enjoy a 20% discount, if they become members of INPM (www.meaning.ca).
(2) The introductory non-credit courses will be offered for free as a way to provide accessible public education. This is part of INPM’s vision to contribute to well-being and mental health in Canada and abroad. These short, modular courses will be offered to anyone who registers for them, free of charge. But for those who require a certificate of completion, they will need to pay a token registration fee of $5 per lecture and complete the assessment instruments.
Paul T. P. Wong, PhD, C.Psych, is Professor Emeritus of Trent University and Adjunct Professor of Saybrook University’s Clinical PhD Program.
