The guest speaker was introduced, Dr. David L. Charney, Founder and Medical Director of the Roundhouse Square Counseling Center in Alexandria, Virginia.  Since 1975, he’s taught psychiatric residents at the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at George Washington University, where he holds the academic rank of Associate Clinical Professor.  
 
As a separate specialty, he’s consulted to the United States Intelligence Community, and has become an expert on The Mind of the Spy. Dr. Charney worked with a number of high-profile spies, and based on this unique knowledge, he’s lectured about his findings to intelligence professionals in many settings.
 
Dr. Charney wrote two-part White Paper entitled “NOIR” on how to better protect the country from spying and was published as a Special Supplement of the journal The Intelligencer. It’s posted on the website NOIR4USA.org.
