James Charney, MD
James Charney, MD is a child and adolescent psychiatrist with a private practice in New Haven, Connecticut, USA. He is on the faculties of the Department of Psychiatry and the Child Study Center, Yale School of Medicine, where he teaches the psychiatric evaluation of adults, children and families to medical students and residents. Dr. Charney was for 25 years the consulting psychiatrist for the Choate-Rosemary Hall School, a private boarding school in Wallingford Connecticut. He is currently the consulting psychiatrist for the St Stephens School in Rome. For the last 10 years he has also taught an undergraduate Senior Seminar at Yale University called Madness at the Movies. This course (jointly sponsored by the Departments of Psychology and Film Studies) uses film to teach how to evaluate and understand the experience of mental illness. The seminar has proved very popular with over 150 students each year applying for only 20 spots. He is currently working on a book based on the Madness at the Movies course. His most exciting recent project, however, is the restoration of a farmhouse near Orvieto; a family dream come true.
Toby Haslam-Hopwood, PsyD
Toby Haslam-Hopwood, PsyD is a clinical psychologist with a strong international background. Originally from England Dr. Haslam-Hopwood completed his clinical training in the United States, which included a stint at the University of Denver, University of Rochester School of Medicine and a fellowship at the Karl Menninger School of Psychiatry. He remained working at the Menninger Clinic for some years, performing a number of different roles but finishing up as the Director of Psychology Training and a faculty member at Baylor college of Medicine. He now works in the West of Ireland with children in the care of the state and their families. He has published and lectured internationally on the use of education to promote health and well being and has international experience of working with children, adults and families. He too has an exciting recent project, albeit a slightly cold and damp one, which is the restoration of a farmhouse in rural Tipperary.
