9781138671553: Psychological Torture: Definition, Evaluation and Measurement

Sadly, it is highly likely that psychological torture is committed by governments worldwide and yet, notwithstanding the serious moral questions that this disturbing and elusive concept raises, and research in the area so limited, there is no operational or legal definition. This pioneering new book provides the first scientific definition and instrument to measure what it means to be tortured psychologically, as well as how allegations of psychological torture can be judged.

Ground in cross-disciplinary research across psychology, anthropology, ethics, philosophy, law and medicine, the book is a tour de force which analyses the legal framework in which psychological torture can exist, the harrowing effects it can have on those who have experienced it, and the motivations and identities of those who perpetrate it.

Integrating the voices both of those who have experienced torture as well as those who have committed it, the book defines what we mean by psychological torture, its aims and effects, as well as the moral and ethical debates in which it operates. Finally, the book builds on the Istanbul Protocol to provide a comprehensive new framework, including practical scales, that enables us to accurately measure psychological torture for the first time.

This is an important and much-needed overview and analysis of an issue that many governments have sought to sweep under the carpet. Its accessibility and range of coverage make it essential reading not only for psychologists and psychiatrists interested in this field, but also human rights organizations, lawyers and the wider international community.

About the Author:

Pau Pérez-Sales is Chair of the World Psychiatric Association Section of Psychological Consequences of Persecution and Torture, Editor-in-Chief of Torture Journal, a practicing psychiatrist in Hospital La Paz (Madrid) and Director of the SiRa-GAC Center.

Review:

'An impressive analysis of the complexity of psychological torture. It addresses the definition of torture, its effects on the victim and the documentation of psychological torture. It argues robustly for a revision of the definition and for updating the Istanbul Protocol. Strongly recommendable to all health professionals, jurists and scholars who deals with aspects of torture.' Hans Draminsky Petersen, former member and vice-chair person of the UN Subcommittee on Prevention of Torture

'Pau Pérez-Sales has carefully laid out a well-developed theoretical framework in his latest book that clearly cannot be ignored by scholars, students and practitioners in legal, humanitarian and health fields dealing with survivors of ill-treatment and (psychological) torture. Monitors of National preventive mechanisms and similar bodies using the 1999 Istanbul Protocol, from whatever professional back ground aiming to stop torture, should all have a copy.' Joost J den Otter, Detention doctor at the International Committee of the Red Cross and Former Clinical Director at the International Rehabilitation Centre for Torture Victims, Denmark.
