I'm genuinely curious how the APA can ban harassers from attending conferences but would be legally liable for "providing victims with a buddy system" at those same meetings?

Hilde Lindemann

The APA really does have to take the legal issues seriously. If it's sued, who will pay the costs? We're run on very much of a shoestring budget. In any case, this is at least as much a moral issue as a legal one. The APA is speaking out, is exhibiting moral leadership. I honestly don't see what more it can do at this point. It would be helpful if those of you who are dissatisfied would make constructive recommendations to the Board.
