Have you looked at sidewaystable (http://www.manicai.net/comp/latex/ 
latex_tricks.html)? Also, as previously mentioned the rotating  
package is very good, especially if you use a minipage environment or  
some such to hold your tabular data, and put both inside your table  
environment. That way you can get your table numbering to work  
properly. However I don't think rotating works over multiple pages  
and therefore wouldn't work with longtable, nor would sideways table  
I think, but I may be wrong on both counts.

apa.cls is quite old now and it is possible there have been changes  
made to other packages that it doesn't understand. Try using apacite  
instead. Others may also suggest using natbib for your citations, but  
apacite works well for me in most circumstances.
