Presenting data effectively leads to people actually reading our data and reports. When we can engage people with intentional reporting, our audience will be more engaged and able to take informed action. Together, we will review Lyons Visualization's 3-Step Process to creating effective visuals by examining before and after data transformations. Grounded in visual processing theory, the principles discussed will enhance attendees' ability to communicate more effectively with peers, colleagues, and clients through a focus on the proper use of color, arrangement, graphics, and text. You will walk away knowing the anatomy of a good visualization, and will have more tools to better design your PowerPoint presentations, reports, fact sheets, dashboards, and conference posters.

It seeks to provide information about why and how trauma and PTSD occur and how trauma treatment is affected by type of trauma experience, socioeconomic and cultural factors, individual personality and family functioning.

Various types of trauma and trauma treatment are discussed from an individual, family, and socio/cultural perspective. The importance of understanding trauma and its relationship to grief and loss will be addressed. Coping and resiliency in surviving and recovering from trauma are explored, emphasizing the diversity of human response and focusing on the significance of social groups in integrating trauma. The formation and practice of rituals, and diversity in religious and spiritual experience as a component of coping with trauma will be discussed.

Due to the marginalization of transgender people, having basic health needs met is a barrier for those who identify as trans. Research proves that a major barrier lies within higher education because educators are not discussing trans topics, specifically around hormone therapy and gender reassignment surgeries, as well as ways to communicate with and address trans people. Because overall well-being and physical health needs are not being met, civic health/civic well-being and a trans person’s quality of life are directly connected. This presentation will explore techniques to be more inclusive in and out of the classroom, as well as ways to actively support trans people as they strive to address their basic health care needs.
