Nxy, good to hear from you on the list.

When we set up the "New Social Roles" project of PsySR's Peacebuilding and Reconciliation program, one key aspect was that what we call the "old social roles" would be negatively impacted as the truth about the APA comes out. That clinicians who took social responsibility would be framed in bad ways on account of their integrity and bravery. As well as the 'standing concern that the problematic would feed back on the "mental patients" advocacy in bad ways, again ways that transgress integrity and bravery. Our "new social roles" discussion has been meant to investigate concerns regarding the "restructure" of how integrity and bravery are taken.

I am pleased with Risen's breakthrough publication and I'm also concerned that reconciliation may be achieved within PsySR's advocacy in a way that will support the kind of legal initiative embraced in the present thread.

And thank you, Bryant, for bringing forward your advocacy  HERE in the Huffington Post.

I think a better (or additional) move on our part is to call for resignations. See the great piece by Bryant Welch in Huffington Post.
