Applied research means taking the best of academic learning to the consumer. As a consultant, I bring more than 15 years of research, teaching and experience to your organization. Plus, with my background in journalism, I translate complex ideas, delivering them to you concisely, clearly and effectively.

Previous consulting projects have included executive-level personal growth seminars, corporate purpose brainstorming sessions, designing and testing digital behavior change exercises, best-practices presentations, assessments and amplifications of existingbehavior change and wellness programs and white-papers translating the latest research into corporate practice.

Dr. Whelan has a unique combination of skills, which has made her a valued partner at Life Reimagined. Yes, as one of the top experts in the field, she brings a deep academic understanding–but it is her ability to communicate and translate that knowledge into an applied and strategic approach that makes the difference between just a “consultant” and a true partner in delivering on consumer wants and needs.

SEEKSafely is a self-help industry watchdog group dedicated to encouraging safe and effective personal discovery. SEEKSafely is leading a groundbreaking effort to encourage prominent self-help practitioners to sign a pledge that they will advise and guide seekers in a safe and constructive way. As a board member and consultant, I helped design the pledge and have circulated it to encourage its adoption. My roles with SEEKSafely have included:

Guidance: I am a firm believer in the benefits of personal improvement. There’s wonderful research being done on good strategies for behavioral change, positive psychology and the importance of seeking meaning and purpose in your life. But, from supplements to seminars, if something has the power to transform for the better, it is also powerful enough to do harm. We have this idea that seminars and inspirational lectures can’t hurt, and might help. But as we learned tragically in Sedona, this just isn’t true. The promise of new beginnings and transformations are very compelling—and not all leaders are guiding their flock in a safe and research-based direction.

Media Outreach: When SEEKSafely launched its promise campaign, I published an op-ed in USAToday to highlight its efforts. I have spoken at press conferences and mentioned the organization in interviews.

Content: I continue to work with SEEKSafely to provide content for its site – the latest research, excerpts from my own published work, original blog content – and guidance to the other SEEKSafely members for their speeches and outreach.
