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.

Introduction to Multilevel Models

In this training course, Dr. Daniel Bauer provides a broad conceptual overview of multilevel statistical modeling. Topics include why conventional statistical models are inappropriate for nested/dependent data structures, the fixed-effects model, and the random effects approach to multilevel modeling. Dr. Bauer demonstrates how to formulate a multilevel model and interpret the results obtained from fitting the model.

School-Based Research: What's In It For Them?

In this training course, Dr. Atkins turns the question, "Why should mental health researchers conduct school studies?" on its head, providing a thought-provoking presentation that focuses on why schools, and the NIMH, should support research in educational settings. He demonstrates a new way to think about 'resistance' to school-based research, advocates taking an ecological perspective when working with public schools, and emphasizes sustainability and the importance of embedded research.
