William Cook of Dyadic Data Consulting, LLC, will speak on “Analyzing Family and Dyadic Data Using Structural Equation Modeling (SEM)” on Friday, Feb. 14 from 9 a.m. to noon in 423 Tobin Hall.
The session is intended for researchers from a broad array of disciplines (clinical, social and developmental psychology, public health, social work) who are interested in interpersonal processes and the study of interpersonal relationships. Statistical models of these relationships can be estimated using both multilevel modeling and structural equation modeling. The SEM approach is preferred for dyads where gender or role distinguish the group members. The session will introduce the SEM approach to the Actor-Partner Interdependence Model and the Social Relations Model for distinguishable couple and family dyads.
The program is hosted by the Center for Research on Families.
