Tim Yu, B.Sc.

Tim has been the INPM’s Student Representative since 2021. He received his BSc in Psychology at the University of Toronto in 2022.

He began working closely with Drs. Paul and Lilian Wong in 2018, and has helped them with various projects, such as putting together two books (Made for Resilience and Happiness and Inspirations for Difficult Times), and two journal special issues (Counseling Psychology Quarterly and Frontiers). Additionally, he helped organize the INPM’s 2019 Summer Institute and 2021 Meaning Conference.

Tim is interested in research focused on death attitudes, responsibility, self-transcendence, meaning, and spirituality. He is often working on several projects at once, aimed at applying the main tenets of Existential Positive Psychology in new territories. After graduate school, he plans to work either in a hospice or palliative care setting, or set up a private practice dedicated to end-of-life counselling.

During his spare time, Tim could be seen playing his guitar or reading philosophical books. If not, then he is probably dreaming about the future.
