Seems to me an appropriate discussion. Concern raised to me (1977:  HERE) was whether "attitude management" went to the level of "critical psychology." Social responsibility has something to do with going further than engaging the phenomenology. Today the APA we see again seeks to deal with "what happened with Hoffman," still there is not the direct argument for accountability.
