APA Hoffman Report
By now many of you are aware of the Hoffman Report which details APA’s role in the War of Terror, specifically torture and treatment of detainees. No doubt there are as many opinions about this as there are members and each of us must decide as individuals where we stand on this issue and must act according to our own sense of ethics and humanity.
Regardless of personal feelings or belief APA is going through a crisis and faces the consequences of scandal. The potential damage to the credibility to our field is high. APA is responding to the Hoffman report and the attached release announcing resignations among APA staff is one of the first of what I am sure will be numerous announcements regarding actions to come.
The Alabama Psychological Association will closely monitor the situation and will provide information as we receive it on the listserve. I intend to withhold a response from aPA to APA until after we have heard from each of you regarding your thoughts, concerns, and suggestions.
