Psychologists for Social Responsibility Oppose APA CEO Search


Psychologists for Social Responsibility (PsySR), one of the groups that led the push for changes to the American Psychological Association’s (APA) collusion in the CIA torture program (as detailed in the Hoffman report), is again calling on the APA  for a change in policies.

In the wake of the Hoffman report, APA CEO Dr. Norman Anderson retired, leaving the Board of Directors to appoint a search committee for a new leader.  PsySR alleges that three of the five members of the search committee are individuals who are associated with the scandal unveiled in the Hoffman report.  They also assert that one of those three members also serves as the head of a company that contracts with national security and intelligence agencies.

PsySR has sent a letter to the APA Board calling for changes to the Association’s interim CEO search process Read the letter here→
