- Karen Dill is a social psychologist who publishes in the field of media psychology, studying video games, interactive media, magazines and music with an emphasis on gender and racial stereotyping and aggression. She is the author of How Fantasy Becomes Reality: Seeing Through Media Influence. Dill gave expert testimony before Congress on media violence in 2000 and on misogyny in rap music lyrics in 2007. She co-authored a statement on interactive media violence, which lead to the APA's Resolution on Violence in Video Games and Interactive Media. Perhaps her most memorable "honor" was having a car named after her in Grand Theft Auto IV - the "Karin Dilettante" is a playful spoof named in homage of the often controversial relationship between the gaming industry and violence researchers.
Joseph Burgo, Ph.D. has practiced psychotherapy for more than 30 years, holding licenses as a marriage and family therapist and clinical psychologist. As an instructor, he has taught graduate students in psychology and supervised their training in community counseling centers. He is also a graduate psychoanalyst and has served as a board member, officer and instructor at a component society of the International Psychoanalytic Association. He spent 13 years in individual psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. In addition to this website, he also writes a blog entitled Movies and Mental Health, hosted by the popular website PsychCentral.
