LIVE STREAM – 3-day Statistics Short Course


Seminar Overview: Mediation and Moderation Training Course

Mediation and moderation analyses are commonly used in many instances. In many scientific fields research questions have become more complex. Researchers are no longer simply interested in if one variable (X) is related to another (Y). Instead, research questions such as: “Why is X related to Y?” and “When is X related to Y?” abound. This course addresses methods to test why two variables are related (mediation) and when two variables are related (moderation).

Seminar Topics:

  • Classic and contemporary approaches of Mediation and Moderation
  • Estimating mediation effects
  • Estimating Moderation
  • Path analysis
  • Indirect and direct effects
  • Testing intervening variable effects
  • Probing and plotting interactions
  • Combining moderation and mediation

Seminar Description:

This Mediation and Moderation course will be helpful for researchers in any field—including psychology, sociology, education, business, human development, political science, public health, communication—and others who want to learn how to apply the latest methods in moderation and mediation analysis using SPSS with PROCESS MACRO. Participants should have a good working knowledge of the principles and practice of multiple regression and elementary statistical inference.

Instructor: Mwarumba Mwavita, Ph.D.
