February 23-24, 2017: Network analyses
Possibly other within-person change analyses

Recent reviews and theoretical models emphasize that psychiatric disorders are conceptualized as complex dynamic systems of mutually interacting symptoms. Novel network approaches to psychopathology highlight that clinical research should no longer focus exclusively on the mean level of symptoms or categorical syndrome definitions arising from a cluster of several co-occurring symptoms, but should also focus on the relation between individual symptoms from one time point to another, as well their dynamic interactions (e.g., short-term dynamics).

For this two-day symposium, we will invite expert speakers to discuss network analyses, focusing on the theoretical background and psychometrics, but also making time for hands-on analyses and practical requirements (such as number of times to measure variables, minimal network, etc.). Both network analyses between groups/conditions and/or within persons over time will be discussed.
