Letter to APA Leadership on Prohibiting Psychologists' Participation in Interrogations

Donna McKay, executive director at Physicians for Human Rights (PHR), sent a letter to the leaders of the American Psychological Association (APA) supporting recommendations from the APA board to adopt new policies and practices that will establish and enforce a clear prohibition against psychologists’ participation in interrogations. For a decade, PHR, together with many colleagues within the APA, has vigorously objected to the association’s policies and positions on psychologist involvement in national security activities. Ahead of the APA’s annual meeting in Toronto, this letter provides key recommendations for the association. Read the full letter here.
