Newman and Kim Publish Report on Education Advocacy in California Psychologist Magazine

Dr. Gilbert Newman, Dean, and Dr. Anatasia Kim, Associate Professor, have published an article on "Fifteen Years Later...A Report from the Education Advocacy Front Line" in the Spring 2015 issue of California Psychologist magazine.

The article traces the origins of student involvement in organized psychology advocacy, the pressing shortage of APA accredited internships, and the effect of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (2010) on requirements for health care workforce qualifications. Newman and Kim also discuss the importance of educating and training doctoral students about legislative advocacy to advance the psychology profession and the communities it serves.
