ABPP Response to the

Independent Review Relating to

APA Ethics Guidelines, National Security Interrogations, and Torture”

 

The Trustees of the American Board of Professional Psychology have recently read the “Independent Review Relating to APA Ethics Guidelines, National Security Interrogations, and Torture” (known as the “Hoffman Report”). All were troubled by many of its findings and allegations. 

 

The American Board of Professional Psychology is committed to protecting the public.  The American Board of Professional Psychology will monitor APA's response to the report and any resulting changes in governance, policies, and procedures.  As an entity separate from APA, the American Board of Professional Psychology encourages the public and ABPP-certified specialists to familiarize themselves with the Hoffman Report (go to www.apa.org/independent-review/index.aspx for access to the review and links that allow for provision of feedback) and share their concerns and perspectives with APA governance.  The American Board of Professional Psychology remains committed to the highest standards of ethical independent and organizational practice.
