WSPA's commitment to advocacy.
WSPA has a long history advocating for mental health, the field of psychology, and social issues that affect Washingtonians.
The historic priorities WSPA has always supported in regard to policy and regulatory issues are:
- Maintaining the integrity and strength of psychology licensing laws
- Address any bills that affect disciplinary process (e.g. sentencing guidelines of unprofessional conduct)
- Address any bills that affect how we practice (e.g. changes to mental health parity or insurance)
- Social justice legislation (e.g. conversion therapy)
