    Abstract:

    Are you interested in learning more about advocacy, but are not quite sure where to start? This training will provide you with information about what advocacy means in different settings as well as what AASP is doing on behalf of advocacy. You will learn some basics about governmental processes and how change occurs at the state government level with our AASP legislative liaison Susie Canata. School Psychology Awareness coordinator Lisa Favela will share how she raised awareness of the profession at a district and local level. Guidance about being an advocate while adhering to district policies will be shared by (AEA leader Marisol?). Remember that at the heart of all of our advocacy efforts is the well-being of preK-12 students, so come prepared to consider next steps in your own advocacy journey.

    Learning Objectives:

    1) Participants will learn what advocacy means and looks like in different settings.

    2) Participants will learn what roles and structures in the Arizona Association of School Psychologists support advocacy.

    3) Participants will be able to identify their state legislative districts and ways to contact state legislators. 

    4) Participants will be able to identify examples of local and district level activities they can implement to promote School Psychology Awareness.

    5) Participants will be made aware of how to navigate common district requirements when engaging with advocacy.
