The use of humor and casual approach make the time spent with Dr. Friday completely enjoyable yet full of useful information that can be applied immediately to your life.

Dr. Friday has presented to national and international forums on topics relevant to cognitive behavioral therapy, including coping with stress, maximizing effective interpersonal communications, and balancing brain functions for a more balanced life. Dr. Friday specializes in supporting professionals in such fields as healthcare, law, education, and business.

Through 30-minute to 3-hour presentations, Dr. Friday provides attendees with practical tools they can use to manage everyday stresses they experience on the job and in their off-duty lives. Presentations impart a foundational knowledge of brain function/location that helps to ground theories of cognitive behavioral therapy in science. Friday's Laws — the eight guideposts of effective thinking — are the framework for the presentations, which he customizes to address each audience's critical stress issues. That customization along with humor, anecdotes from his 40 years of clinical practice, and hands-on activities serve to engage and inspire audiences of all sizes, from a boardroom of a dozen to a concert hall of thousands.
