Ethics and Behavior 19 (2):156 – 168 (2009)
In recent years, ethical concerns have emerged among psychologists, psychiatrists, and physicians about interrogating inmates detained at U.S. military prison camps, such as Guantanamo Bay, or consulting on such interrogations. These concerns have escalated to levels necessitating the three major associations—the American Psychological Association, the American Psychiatric Association, and the American Medical Association—to formulate position statements on these issues. Within the psychological community, two divergent schools of thought have developed, and this article explores the role of psychologists in these types of interrogations and the related ethical concerns. Specifically, this article provides an overview of psychologists' roles in this area, presents an analysis of the ethical guidelines, discusses the implications of the American Psychological Association's position statement, and offers suggestions to reconcile the current ethical debate
