PAA spends over 1000 hours a year advocating for the unique value of psychology
It is a part of who we are:
The Psychologists’ Association of Alberta is the voice of, and for, psychology in Alberta.
2020-2025 Strategic Plan point:
Advocate for psychology’s unique value
Make an impact: Psychologists as Advocates with Elected Officials
The time is always now for advocacy.
PAA also informs the public and the media, and advocates for consumers of psychotherapy, psychological, and mental health services.
As a PAA member, you have the opportunity to make a difference! You already have some of the key tools to be an effective advocate for your profession.
Advocacy as an individual’s or group’s action has the power to influence a political decision, build alliances, and open seats at tables where psychology’s voice should be heard.
