# Longitudinal Models

**Longitudinal Models (HPSC 513)**

**Longitudinal Models (HPSC 513)**

This course is an elective in the clinical psychology Ph.D. program.

The class was offered during the 2015/2016 school year. I used SPSS and Mplus; while background through and including multivariate statistics (i.e., Statistics II at RFUMS), no knowledge of statistics packages is assumed (some students have experience with LISREL, whereas others worked with Mplus). The plan is to offer this course every other spring.

The course focuses on longitudinal modeling. Modeling will be done from a structural equation modeling perspective (SEM), multilevel modeling (MLM) and generalized estimating equation (GEE) approaches, as well as to techniques with which people are more familiar (i.e., t-tests, regressions, analyses of variance [ANOVAs]).
