ABCT strongly and unambiguously condemns the use of torture of any kind, for any reason, under any circumstances. Research indicates that torture often leads to destructive psychological and physical consequences. We consider the alleged actions of the two psychologists who designed and carried out the United States CIA detention and interrogation program as described in the recently released Senate Select Committee on Intelligence’s report to be wholly unethical and morally reprehensible.
