Workshop Title: Psychology Advocacy Training: The Basics in Preparation for Action

Workshop Description:

This session provides an overview of the Georgia State electoral, legislative and regulatory process.  It will inform participants about the ways in which constituent psychologists stay informed about and interact with key components so as to advance the causes of the profession and the citizens whom they serve.  Training is provided in the most productive methods of interacting with the legislative body.  While reinforcing and building on advocacy training previously provided by GPA, this workshop also addresses current GA and national advocacy platforms for psychologists in the areas of practice, education and training and research, and lays the groundwork for future training sessions in areas of particular interest to GPA and Georgia psychologists such as the implementation of PSYPACT, scope of practice, parity, Medicaid and other reimbursement issues, and immigration, amongst others.

Learning Objectives

  1. Describe the roles and key processes associated with the Georgia legislative bodies; the election of members to the legislature and how that compares to both Federal entities(i.e. Congress) and to the function of key State regulatory agencies impacting the work of psychologists.
  2. Utilize available resources to identify their GA state and Federal Senators and Representatives.
  3. Prepare for and deliver elements of an advocacy position so as to advance the causes of the profession of Psychology and the citizens who are served by psychologists and/or benefit from psychological research.
