In studies using intensive data collection techniques, such as ESM and
Ecological Momentary Assessment (EMA), participants are asked to
respond to a questionnaire several times a day, usually over several
days. Such data collection techniques yield a large number of repeated
measures with multiple variables per individual. Multilevel
(mixed-effects) models are usually the preferred method for analyzing
During this three-day course, you will be given tools to analyze intensive longitudinal data with suitable mixed-effects models. The course consists of a mix of lectures and computer exercises. We will not only cover the theoretical background, but also provide practical tools and practice in analyzing real ESM datasets using one or more software packages.
The Belgian-Dutch network for ESM research in mental health recently launched its website esm-network.eu. The network is a collaboration between KU Leuven, Maastricht University, Open University, Rijksuniversiteit Groningen, and Tilburg University. The universities are collaborating to increase knowledge about ESM in mental health research. During the annual closed meeting of the network, experts from the participating universities come together to exchange expertise, explore and shape cooperation, and work on joined products. Current joined projects of the expert network are presented on the website.
