Winter Stats Camp - Brea California


New Seminars for January 2017

Brea, California  January 5-7 2017


Dear Stats Camp Nation:
I am extremely delighted to announce our 1st annual Winter Camp and it is just around the corner!

We have an amazing group of instructors (Katherine Masyn, Andrew Hayes, Larry Price, Elizabeth Grandfield, Kevin Grimm, and me J) and courses set for January 5, 6, & 7.

Moreover, we have a very special keynote address by a true legend of latent variable modeling, Bengt Muth?n. Bengt will be the inaugural keynote speaker at Winter Camp. He is introducing version 8 of his super powerful and popular software package Mplus. His talk is free and includes dinner for all registered campers! (You can order dinner if you just want to attend Bengt's talk).

Introduction to Mplus<>
More and more researchers in the social and behavioral sciences use, or want to use, Mplus to analyze their structural equation models. This intensive 2.5-day seminar is designed to get you up to speed.

Longitudinal Growth Modeling with Mplus<>
Growth models have become a mainstay of longitudinal data analysis in the social and behavioral sciences to examine how individuals change over time and how individuals differ in their change process. This training is intended for faculty, postdocs and advanced graduate students who are familiar with structural equation modeling and multilevel modeling.

Mediation, Moderation, and Conditional Process Analysis<>
Intermediate to advanced topics in the analysis of moderation and mediation using regression analysis, with an emphasis on the use of the PROCESS macro for SPSS and SAS. Mediation analysis is used to test various intervening mechanisms by which causal effects operate. Moderation analysis is used to examine and explore questions about the contingencies or conditions of an effect, also called "interaction."

Optimal Survey Design<>
 Attendees will learn how to:
- Design a survey questionnaire
- Write questions and/or statements
- Evaluate survey questions for quality
- Avoid measurement error
- Identify a sample target population
- Use SEM for design and analysis
- Apply analytic techniques for missing data

Practically Applied SEM featuring Mplus<>
Participants will learn the foundations of confirmatory factor analysis (CFA).  CFA is the quintessential measurement and modeling tool for latent variable estimation.
This seminar is ideal for life-science investigators, biostatisticians, program evaluators, big-data analysts, and R & D researchers-anyone who desires to make valid inferences using latent variable modeling procedures.

Survival Analysis and Event History Models in Mplus<>
Topics include discrete-time and continuous-time survival analysis for single, non-recurring events, modeling time-invariant and time-varying predictors of event time, and select multivariate event history extensions.  Hands-on practice with Mplus is provided.
Participants will learn statistical modeling techniques that can address questions about not only if an event occurred for individuals in your sample, but also when the event occurred for those individuals, and what covariates may be related to individual differences in event timing.
