Longitudinal Structural Equation Modeling is a five-day workshop focused on the application and interpretation of structural equation models fitted to repeated measures data. The analysis of longitudinal data (i.e., the repeated measurement of the same cases over time) has become fundamental in most areas of social and behavioral science research. There are many structural equation models available for analyzing repeated measures data, ranging from two time-point autoregressive models to complex multivariate latent curve models spanning multiple time periods. The goal of this workshop is to present a variety of longitudinal SEMs ranging from traditional methods to recent advances in latent curve modeling. Topics include longitudinal factor analysis, autoregressive cross-lagged models, latent curve models, separating within- and between-person effects, and multiple group growth models. This course offers a comprehensive examination of the SEM as a foundation for the estimation of a variety of models for testing hypotheses about stability and change in repeated measures data.

Workshop Details


In an effort to continually improve our instruction we obtain student evaluations with each course offering. Here is a sample of reviews from prior LSEM workshops:

One of the best statistical workshops I’ve ever taken, the first where I would go home and work for additional hours analyzing data or reading the notes for greater understanding of the material.

This workshop provides clear, understandable, and engaging teaching with wonderful resources for the future. Dan and Patrick are fantastic instructors, and they provide a very comfortable, enjoyable atmosphere for a week-long stats workshop.

This is the best option for training that will effectively prepare you to foray into the method. It greatly expanded my perspective on longitudinal analysis.

Excellent instructors, a great opportunity to clarify issues that I was always unsure about, helpful and comprehensive materials that are priceless!

The instruction was first-rate. It’s no surprise Curran & Bauer are award-winning instructors.
