Beginning in 2007, in addition to a full time clinical practice, Dr. Bond has worked extensively to hold psychologists accountable for their roles in the torture and abuse of detainees by filing complaints with state licensing boards and the American Psychological Association. These efforts have been facilitated by extensive collaboration with many partners including the Center for Constitutional Rights and the Harvard Law School International Human Rights Clinic.
