  • Pat O’Neill, Mount Saint Vincent University  |  School psychology
    “The article reflects my interest in the relationship between ethics and responsibility to society. I am a long-time member of the committee on Ethics of the Canadian Psychological Association. I am also a member of the governing council of the American Psychological Association, and much of the paper reports and reflects on the controversy over APA involvement in torture, and the coverup of torture, by psychologists at the detention camp at Guantanamo Bay and various CIA black sites.”
