Description

An Introduction to Moderators and Mediators

This advanced training course is based on a presentation by Dr. Helena Kraemer at the 2007 Career Development Institute for Psychiatry in Palo Alto, CA. The course focuses on the operational definitions of mediation and moderation, the rationale for examining them, and criteria used to determine if variables are mediators or moderators. Dr. Kraemer does this by comparing the traditional Baron & Kenny model to the innovative MacArthur model.

Presenter:

Dr. Helena Kraemer is a Professor Emerita of Biostatistics in Psychiatry at Stanford University. Her research focuses on research methods in the behavioral aspects of medicine. Her work has mainly been in psychiatry and health psychology, but as behavior has become of increasing interest in all other fields of medicine, she has worked on projects in cardiology, epidemiology, pediatrics, and oncology as well. Currently, she is concerned with problems arising in risk research, particularly related to risk factors "working together" to produce outcomes (moderation and mediation) and effect sizes that are both clinically and practically interpretable and statistically valid.


Audience:

This advanced course is recommended for researchers, psychiatrists, and psychologists who have knowledge of basic statistics and who seek to gain a better understanding of the conceptual and operational definitions of mediation and moderation. Topics include the rationale for examining mediators and moderators, and the criteria used to establish variables as mediators and moderators. Dr. Kraemer compares the traditional Baron & Kenny model to the innovative MacArthur model.
