“Mediation and Moderation Analysis”

Professor Changiz Mohiyeddini
(Professor of Personality Psychology & Research Methods, Roehampton University, London, UK)

Wednesday, 4 August 2010, 9:00-12:00.

The workshop is aimed at conference participants who wish to deepen their knowledge and improve their skills in performing Mediation and Moderation analysis. The purpose of the workshop is to distinguish between the properties of moderator and mediator variables and to provide a comprehensive description of Mediator and moderator analysis and their differences. Following a non-technical approach, issues related to study design, analysis, discussion, interpretation and limitation of results will be introduced step by step. The participants have the opportunity to work on detailed examples and (if available) analyse their own data.

The workshop program will cover the following topics:

  • Description of Mediator and Moderator analysis
  • The difference between Mediator and Moderator analysis
  • Performing Mediator analysis
  • How to test Mediation Effects in Multiple Regression?
  • Which study designs are suitable for Mediator Analysis?
  • Choosing Mediator Variables
  • Predictor–Outcome Relation
  • Establishing Causation
  • Calculating Power
  • Interpreting the Results
  • Performing Moderator analysis
  • How to test Moderator Effects in Multiple Regression?
  • Which study designs are suitable for Moderator Analysis?
  • Testing the Significance of the Moderator Effect
  • Power of Tests of Interactions
  • Interpreting the results
  • Examining Multiple Moderator Effects
  • Examining Higher Order Interactions

Please note the following Pre-Requisite for this Workshop:
It is required that participants possess basic knowledge in Regression Analysis and SPSS.
