Parent, author, consultant, speaker

Charles Fay, Ph.D. is a parent, internationally recognized author, consultant and highly skilled public speaker.

Millions of educators, mental health professionals, and parents world-wide have benefited from his practical and down-to-earth solutions to the most common and frustrating behaviors displayed by youth of all ages. These solutions come directly from years of research and clinical experience serving severely disturbed youth and their families in psychiatric hospitals, public and private schools, and homes.

Dr. Fay’s interest in education and psychology were peaked as a child from years of exposure to some of our nation’s most dynamic experts in these fields. This early exposure came as a result of participation in training events with his father, Jim Fay. Jim is one of the nation’s leading experts on child discipline and has over fifty years of experience in public education. The internationally recognized Love and Logic approach was literally developed around Charles Fay as he grew. Now he jokes, “I think that’s why I became a psychologist…just to figure out what they were doing to me as a kid. But…let me be clear…I absolutely adore my mom and dad as a result.”

Dr. Fay earned his Ph.D. with highest honors in 1997 from the University of South Carolina. Prior to and during his university training in school and clinical psychology, he enjoyed extensive experience working with children in psychiatric, public school and mental health settings.

Dr. Fay currently works full time as an author, consultant, public speaker and CEO of the Love and Logic Institute. Because of his high-powered sense of humor and story-telling skills, audiences experience the most memorable and life changing form of learning: learning that’s mentally connected to joy and real-life examples. Many conference attendees have written, “The time went so fast…a very entertaining speaker,” and “I’m so relieved that he gave us things we can actually use rather than lots of theory and impractical stuff,” and “I first heard Dr. Fay fifteen years ago. I’m still using the skills I learned all those years ago!”
