Studying brief interventions mechanisms

Moderation, mediation, and moderated mediation analyses

15h00 – 17h00 PM

Are you interested in studying the mechanisms of efficacy of brief interventions or interested in factors likely to impact an intervention’s effect? Join us for the INEBRIA 2016 Special workshop on moderation, mediation, and moderated mediation analyses.

Participants will learn how to design a conceptual framework of intervention potential mechanisms, and how to test these by running moderation, mediation, and/or moderated mediation analyses.

This workshop is intended for a non-statistician audience. It will focus on practical analyses and not on statistical theory. Basic knowledge on linear regression analyses is recommended.

Participation is free for INEBRIA 2016 attendees but registration is mandatory.
