The National Guideline Clearinghouse

APA task force reports represent the findings, opinions, and conclusions of APA task forces but, unlike APA practice guidelines, do not reflect APA policy or necessarily represent the views of the APA Board of Trustees. Resource documents are collections of information, data, and reviews of the literature developed by APA components and staff. Like task force reports, they do not represent APA policy. The APA Melvin Sabshin Library and Archives provides approved task force reports and resource documents.
