The Society for the
Study of Social Issues




On behalf of the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues, its Council expresses its distress to learn that the APA was complicit in facilitating psychologists’ participation in the practice of torturing detainees after the events of 9/11. That psychology’s own professional organization would so egregiously violate psychologists’ ethical principles and the commitment to social justice that is at the core of SPSSI’s values is appalling and unprecedented. We stand with other concerned psychologists  who are committed to reforming the American Psychological Association to ensure transparent and democratic process and to make it impossible that such events will ever occur in the future.
