The role that psychologists and the American Psychological Association (APA) have played in the context of detainee abuse and torture is a pressing concern for the profession of psychology and for everyone committed to human rights.

There are now many excellent resources available for those interested in learning more and taking action--including carefully researched articles and books, exceptional documentaries, and an increasing number of publicly available official documents.

I welcome reactions and would appreciate your forwarding the video to friends, colleagues, and others who you think would find it valuable.
