Grassroots Development

Whether you are new to grassroots advocacy, or are interested in strengthening your skills, this manual is for you. It includes tips and useful knowledge designed to help you ensure that policy makers in Albany, NY and in Washington, DC are responsive to issues that affect the profession of psychology and the psychological needs of their constituents.  Every year there are ongoing battles with insurance regulations, access to care, competition among heath care professions, scope of practice issues and specific bills introduced. All of these issues ultimately affect patients and quality of psychological care. Addressing these issues to gain successful outcomes requires strategy, patience and a plan.
