Impressions from the 8th Mplus Users’ Meeting in Utrecht, 2017
The aim of the Dutch Mplus Users Group is to bring together international users of Mplus and to share information, learn about new developments and discuss solutions for typical Mplus problems. We organize such meetings for all interested researchers (applied researchers, statisticians & methodologists). Impression from our last meeting can be found in this video. Don't miss our next meeting!

Dynamic Structural Equation Modeling explained in 5 minutes
Mplus 8 offers the possibility to analyze intensive longitudinal data, such as obtained with ecological momentary assessments, experience sampling method, ambulatory assessments, and daily diaries, using dynamic SEM (DSEM). Tihomir Asparouhov explains the equations behind DSEM in 5 minutes (you might want to watch the movie several times...).
Interview with Mårten Schulzberg
Mårten Schulzberg is one of the early adopters of Dynamic Structural Equation Modeling. In this interview he talks about his motivation and explains how he applied DSEM.

The short animation can be used in classroom as a starting point for the discussion about this topic.
