February is National Psychology Month!

2017 Theme -- The Value of Choosing a Psychologist

 

February is an excellent opportunity for all of us to let the public know what psychology offers. Psychology Month raises awareness of the role that psychology plays in our lives, our schools, our communities, & our employment.

In 2016, PAA & you (our members) participated in a variety of events for public education and to promote the profession.

We build on those successes last year with an exciting campaign.

Email brittany@paa-ab.ca to be put on a list of psychologists interested in volunteering to do brief psychology talks at various organizations during psychology month. Know an organization that you would like to speak at? Then download this letter, fill in your name and the name of your local organization, and send it to the organization directly. It’s a great way to represent the profession and we can provide you with many resources for your talk.
