Sadly, Torture Psychology, Pt. 2
The day ends with the American Psychological Association (APA) appearing content to issue a press release which bears commonality with any Richard Nixon statement during the depths of the Watergate crime and cover-up --- more so than anything relating to a statement by an organization that currently represents tens of thousands of psychologists.
Another shameful day for psychology in the eyes of the world.
