Abstract and Keywords

From 2004 through 2010, the American Psychological Association expended considerable time and resources examining the ethical aspects of psychologists’ involvement in national-security-related interrogations. In this chapter, the authors examine APA’s evolving position, beginning with the reasons that stimulated APA to begin its work on ethics and interrogations. The authors discuss in detail the policies adopted by the APA during these years and identify the motivations that led to each further development in APA policy. In addressing a series of policies adopted by APA, the authors highlight the considerable debate within the Association concerning the appropriate position for the APA to adopt and provide an overview of why the issue was so challenging for the APA membership.

Keywords: ethics, human rights, interrogation, military, national security
