Moderation and Mediation Analysis

July 10, 2017 @ 9:00 am - July 11, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

$425 - $500

Moderation and mediation analyses are a common method employed in the social, behavioural, and health sciences research. In this two-day hands-on workshop we will cover the use of regression analysis in analyzing moderation (single and multiple moderators), mediation (simple, parallel, and serial), moderated mediation (first stage and second stage), dual moderated mediation, and moderated moderated mediation. In addition we will focus on the use of these methods with cross-sectional binary, categorical, continuous and count data.

There are only 20 seats available so register early to secure your spot. Registration and payment can be made directly online. We accept PayPal, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Cheques and Email Transfers.

Who Should Attend

This workshop is for anyone interested in learning how to analyze moderators and mediators, moderated mediation and moderated moderated mediation, including the use of bootstrapped standard errors and bias-corrected bootstrapped confidence intervals. We will be focusing on the use of cross-sectional binary, categorical, continuous and count data.

Participants are encouraged to have a working knowledge of multiple regression. Hands-on examples will be demonstrated in Mplus, R (using the Lavaan package in R-Studio), and SPSS (using Hayes’ PROCESS macro). No prior knowledge of Mplus or the Lavaan package is required. A basic working knowledge of SPSS would be helpful.


We will be providing examples using three different software programs. Mplus, R (using the Lavaan package with R-Studio) and SPSS (using Hayes’ PROCESS macro). Please have either of these programs installed on your laptop prior to attending. If you do not own copy of Mplus, a free but limited demonstration version is available for download at the Mplus Website. R-Studio (free) can be downloaded here, while R (also free) can be downloaded here. A free trial version of SPSS is available here.

Handout materials and datasets will be provided.

Coffee and light snacks will be provided at the beginning of the workshop and at each break. While participants are on their own for lunch, there are plenty of great places to eat nearby.
