Aims and learning outcomes:

The aim of the course is to provide an introduction to Structural Equation Modelling using Mplus. The course contains 3 parts:

  1. Cross-sectional data analysis (2 days)
  2. Multilevel analysis (2 days)
  3. Longitudinal data analysis (2 days)

Everyone is warmly invited to attend, but please note that technical details will be kept at a level suitable for someone with no prior knowledge of SEM and Mplus. At the end of the course, you should be able to understand and conduct a variety of structural equation models using Mplus. Lunch is provided.
