EXPLOSIONS OF JOY


Prominent Chinese psychologist Paul Yin and Pennsylvania based High School English teacher Trina A. Kraus discuss their heartfelt and inspiring book, “Explosions of Joy: A Memoir of the Grief Counselor for Missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370”, on Big Blend Radio. The memoir follows Paul’s life as he fought to break through the barriers against mental health care which remained intact from Mao Zedong’s rule.

On March 8, 2014, families of passengers aboard MH370 went to the Beijing Airport pick up their loved ones and saw “delay” on the arrival boards. Within the hour, they were instructed to gather at a hotel conference room because the plane had disappeared from radar. Paul Yin immediately orchestrated counseling for all those involved by connecting them to insurance/EAP if they had it, trained counselors on the spot, and conducted his own sessions. He was the face on all the newscasts (CNN, Anderson Cooper, NBC, and many other international news outlets) as an advocate for the families. Paul’s memoir details the events of his life, including his fight to change the culture of China in regards to the field of psychology, that led him to play that prominent role in one of the most devastating and mystifying tragedies leaving a wound felt by everyone around the world.

Paul Yin was born in China and spent 22 years in the U.S. He returned to China to fulfill his dream of providing psychological service to his countrymen. Today, Paul is mostly known as a prominent psychologist from China. But he is a true renaissance man living a life of no-limits. On a unique winding path, and through events like the SARS epidemic, the Sichuan earthquake, Asiana Airlines Flight 214, and Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, he was guided into a life of answering the call of service to humanity. This is Paul Yin’s debut publication in poems and magazine articles, and he has been a frequent guest on TV and radio.

Trina A. Kraus holds a Master’s of Science in Education and has taught high school English for seventeen years in Pennsylvania and Washington State.
