Getting Comfortable with Data: Developing Analytical Skills for Child Life ProfessionalsContains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits
With ACLP’s increasing focus on research and evidence-based practice, now is the time to become more comfortable having conversations about data. In this webinar, we will discuss the importance of data and how impactful a working knowledge of data analysis can be for drawing conclusions within child life practice, management, and the professional landscape. Because many child life specialists don’t yet feel confident completing their own statistical analyses, we will discuss how to tap into resources to find analytic support and how to communicate your analytic goals when you do. This webinar will increase the data literacy of child life specialists and decrease their hesitation around quantitative data.
