10-Year "Psychology, Torture, and the APA" Timeline  (scroll down for directions)

Psychologist/APA Involvement
Key Events
Related Events

Summary: This 10-year interactive timeline, created by Coalition member Roy Eidelson, documents the involvement of psychologists and the American Psychological Association (APA) in the "war on terror" abuse and torture of detainees. The timeline was prepared several years prior to the 2015 “Hoffman Report,” which confirmed extensive collusion between APA leaders and representatives of the military/intelligence establishment. The entries here do not reflect additional information available in that report.

Navigation: Use the horizontal scrollbar just below the Timeline to move forward or backward in time from 2001 to 2011. Click on any entry for more information about that event.

Search: The timeline also includes a search function. Enter your keyword or phrase in either the filter-by-tex box or the highlight-by-text box. Matching events will be marked in the lower, black band of the timeline.

Comments/Suggestions: We welcome comments and suggestions for additional entries at timeline@ethicalpsychology.org.
