The following video was created as part of Dr. Jennifer Frain's 2012/13 CPA Presidential year. Her theme for the year was Advocacy and this video tells the stories of three successful advocacy initiatives. Together they highlight ingredients necessary for successful advocacy: (1) building relationships; (2) perseverance; and (3) creating opportunities. One story speaks to how new psychology positions were created within the Vancouver Coastal Health Region. Another story speaks to how psychologists in Manitoba were invited to pilot a primary care model. The final story looks at how a new training program, the PsyD, was created in Newfoundland and Labrador. Psychology advocacy is an endeavor that requires a team: get involved with your local psychologists and also with the CPA!
