Workshop: Testing Mediating Effects, Moderating Effects and Moderated Mediating Effects with Mplus

This one-day workshop (a) provides the basic concepts behind mediation, moderation, and moderated-mediation, (b) reviews on the advantages of testing mediation and moderation effects with latent variables over observed variables, and (c) demonstrates how to estimate specific mediation effect, compare mediation effects, and test moderated-mediation hypotheses with latent variables using Mplus.
