While successive APS boards have cast our society into the current crisis by promoting – or at least failing to curb – the interests and ambitions of a minority over those of the vast majority of members, the President of the British Psychological Society – a Clinical Psychologist – has shown us just what is missing from the conduct of our affairs … intelligent reflection on the moral and…
