We reported earlier this week that the American Psychological Association (APA) had come under renewed criticism over three controversial appointments to its search committee for a new CEO. Today, the APA board of directors announced that it has changed the composition of the search committee in response to this pressure.
The board was strongly criticized by Psychologists for Social Responsibility (PsySR) and others for appointing three members to the search committee who were implicated in the Hoffman report, which unveiled the APAs involvement in the CIA torture program.
One of the new appointees to the search committee is Emily Voelkel, a student representative who recently spoke out on behalf of students about the recent scandal at APA.

The real goal: How can we secretly nominate someone who will increase drugging, increase use of fake diagnoses, and increase big pharma profit while making it seem like we are serving the public interest?
They should hire David Copperfield the magician to be on this committee.
APA is looking for a new CEO? Very, very interesting. Can I work from home? Send me a copy of the DSM 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. I’ll get to work immediately.
“…a more limited pool of candidates”.
Yes, seems Jan.1, 2016 is a rather large turning point on a global level for “human rights”.
