Because freedom can't protect itself
Great article! The APA has really damaged its reputation. They would be wise to do what you suggested, unless they want to be forever remembered as the American Psycho Association of Nazi doctors.
Okat thats nice post!!
Hmm, great blog post!
I think there must be some limits set by Psychologists, limits beyond which if a criminal is tortured must be interrogated under law.
The human brain has certain limits for bearing pain; once that limit is crossed the brain can start malfunctioning.
SO, there is an urgent need from Psychologists to set limits -- beyond which, no interrogation team should be allowed to torture the criminal.
Dr Maurice Prout the renowned Psychologist has recently discussed this issue in great detail at a seminar in Pennsylvania.You can read about this topic in the articles section of his website http://www.mauricefprout.com
