Parenting and Family Dynamics preconference will return with a fresh slate of topics: fathering, culture, and resilience. Moreover, we will have a group discussion/speed mentoring session led by renowned professors in the field (themes are listed below). In addition, the developer of the blavvan package in R will teach us how to use his package for Bayesian latent modeling, and the talks will include diverse methods such as neuroscience, observation, narratives, and DNA analysis.
