Mediation and moderation analyses are widely used in many different fields. Mediation analysis tests hypotheses about mechanisms or processes by which effects occur. Moderation analysis examines questions of contingencies (e.g., for whom, or when), commonly described as an “interaction”.

Moderation and mediation can be combined analytically to investigate questions of contingencies in mechanisms. This is called conditional process analysis or moderated mediation. These statistical approaches help researchers generate theoretical models of how and when, which can then be statistically evaluated using observed data.

This course covers methods for statistical mediation, moderation, and conditional process analysis using ordinary least squares (OLS) regression and the PROCESS macro, available for SPSS, SAS, and R.

Starting August 9, we are offering this seminar as a 4-day synchronous*, livestream workshop held via the free video-conferencing software Zoom. Each day will consist of two lecture sessions which include hands-on exercises, separated by a 1-hour break. You are encouraged to join the lecture live, but will have the opportunity to view the recorded session later in the day if you are unable to attend at the scheduled time.

*We understand that finding time to participate in livestream courses can be difficult. If you prefer, you may take all or part of the course asynchronously. The video recordings will be made available within 24 hours of each session and will be accessible for four weeks after the seminar, meaning that you will get all of the class content and discussions even if you cannot participate synchronously.

Closed captioning is available for all live and recorded sessions.

"... comprehensive, clear, and Amanda did a fabulous job..."

“This seminar was a fantastic introduction to moderation, mediation, and CPA analysis. It was comprehensive, clear, and Amanda did a fabulous job at explaining complex concepts.”

Christina Maxwell

University of Queensland

"I took away a deeper conceptual understanding..."

“I appreciated that the course supported and trained in multiple software types (R, SPSS, SAS). The instructor was very knowledgeable and clear. I appreciated her detailed slides, responsiveness to questions, and the discussion at the end of the course regarding resources for SEM. I took away a deeper conceptual understanding of the concepts and practical tools that I will apply in my future research.”

"I appreciated the online/virtual format..."

“The information provided was exactly what I needed and I met my own goals for learning. I appreciated the online/virtual format and that I didn’t need to travel anywhere to get this information face-to-face.”
