Utah Psychological Association presents:How the Legislative Session Affects You
Ashley Greenwell, PhD & Nan Klein, PhD
Beginning in the 1940’s, the profession of psychologist first became an officially recognized and regulated occupation in the US. Now more than half a century later, our state and federal legislation continues to evolve and have a meaningful impact on how we define ourselves. Many psychologists will find themselves interfacing with DOPL, ASPPB, and APA at some point in their career. This presentation will provide an overview of the relationship between psychologists and the entities that govern them and guide practices. It will review recent legislative changes, expected developments for the coming year, and share ways that members can serve as advocates both for the discipline and for the public we serve.
