May 10, 2024 (12-2pm EST): Dr. Judi Malone - Effective Advocacy: Your Role as Clinicians


Psychologists are uniquely trained in a vast number of areas: program development, consultation, supervision, behavioural (non-pharmacological) pain management, telehealth, cross-jurisdiction expertise, etc., that make us effective advocates. Psychologists also have natural networks and spheres of influence for advocacy, with great potential to develop core relationships with key professionals. Advocacy is not about competing with other professions. It is about focusing on the unique value, or niche “sells”, of psychology – we add value. This presentation reviews how, where, when, why, and with whom to effectively advocate in addition to how to structure key messages.
