This Advocacy Toolkit was developed as a result of a joint effort between four divisions of the American Psychological Association (APA): Division 17, the Society of Counseling Psychology; Division 27, the Society for Community Research and Action; Division 35, the Society for the Psychology of Women; and Division 45, the Society for the Psychological Study of Culture, Ethnicity and Race. The goals were to develop a science-based, high-quality advocacy toolkit that highlights different forms of advocacy strategies to inform policy at the state and local levels, and to build a community of grassroots psychologist advocates that can intervene to promote well-being in the communities in which they reside.
The Policy Committee Practicum is designed for students to engage in policy and/or advocacy-related activities that are of interest to the student. Practicum students are supervised by the Policy Committee Chair(s) and may receive course credit from their respective institutions. The practicum is unpaid, but limited funding for policy-related conference or training attendance may be requested.
From SCRA's Practice Council, a resource guide for finding community psychology practitioners who are willing to be guest speakers for educational programs and mentors for students.
