Structural Equation Modeling Workshop
University of California, Davis
August 20-22, 2012

Overview
This workshop on Structural Equation Modeling is an intense three-day workshop focused on the foundations of structural equation modeling. Topics include path analysis, confirmatory factor analysis, models for multiple groups, latent variable path analysis, categorical outcomes, and latent growth curve modeling. We provide a comprehensive overview of these approaches through lecture presentations, empirical examples, and computer lab sessions. Participants receive hard and electronic copies of lecture presentations, relevant research articles, example data sets, and programming scripts from commonly used statistical packages such as Mplus and OpenMx.

Who Should Attend
This training is designed for advanced graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, faculty, and research scientists from the behavioral, social, and health sciences. It is recommended that participants have a solid understanding of simple and multiple regression.

Goals
The goals of the workshop are to provide participants with theoretical and practical knowledge of techniques for analyzing data with structural equations. Participants should leave the workshop ready and able to analyze data and properly interpret results from such analyses.

Registration
Tuition for the three-day workshop is $750 per registrant. Registration includes a bound copy of the course notes, electronic copies of notes, relevant research articles, example data sets, and electronic copies of the course notes. Refreshments will be served during the morning and afternoon breaks. Please go to our website (
