Is the APA an Activist Organisation?Posted: May 12, 2015
In debates about whether homosexuality is healthy, people will often cite the American Psychological Association, commonly referred to as the APA. They are a body that is widely respected, and carry a fair amount of influence in terms of standards used by psychologists today.
