Mediation, Moderation and Conditional Process Analysis: Computations in SPSS

Hello all:

I conducted a workshop on ‘Conditional Process Analysis’ at IIM Ahmedabad on November 26, 2021.

The workshop focused on multivariate regressions and the topics of mediations and moderations, two topics in causal analysis that are closely related and often confused. Today, research literature in social sciences has gone beyond mediation and moderation, and encourages scholars to test moderated-mediations as well as moderated-moderations (in general, called as conditional process analysis). The workshop focused on developing understanding of conditional process analysis and learning about the ways to test them. Although these concepts are fairly simple, the statistical issues that arise in estimating and testing mediation and moderation effects turn out to be rather complex and subtle.

The workshop covered the following topics:

1. Mediation models and partitioning effects into direct and indirect components.

2. Understanding the idea of conditional process models.

3. Estimating conditional indirect effects, determining whether an indirect effect is moderated.
