Vwx's point is well taken.

The "reward and consent" advocacy is an incorrect handle on the sociocultural analytic of behavior theory.

You might take up some 'humility' and identify the integrity and fundamentally political character of his speech.

We have IMHO an historical point where social responsibility needs to be properly engaged.

Are you aware of any Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) involved in CIA torture? (Division 25 of the APA is Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Many PhD psychologists are also BCBAs.)

BCBAs and some non-BCBA PhD psychologists participate on the Board of Directors of the Judge Rotenberg Center (JRC) which shocks autistic children and others for behaviors as mild as “non-compliance” (by their own admission). It’s been covered in the press. The U.N. called it torture.… The FDA is deliberating on a ban of their patented contingent skin shock device.

This morning’s news: The APA may be charged with a RICO statute violation if new evidence is uncovered, within the statute of limitations, regarding psychologists and physicians involvement in torture. The APA engaged in a secret arrangement with the CIA in changing guidelines and ethics to enable the weaponization of health professionals, especially psychologists, prohibited by the Nuremburg code and the US code against torture and experimentation of human subjects in conjunction with the Office of Medical Services within the CIA. The APA, for years, resisted any ban on weaponization of health professionals, including current regulations. HERE

Time for ethical psychologists to turn in their APA membership and distance themselves from the greed, deceit and unethical practices of the APA.
