Mediational Analysis with Multilevel Modeling

​Mediational analysis is a core method for researchers interested in characterizing causal and indirect sequences or processes, yet popular mediation analysis tools do not easily accommodate clustered data (e.g., individuals within families, students within schools, repeated measures within individuals). Multilevel Structural Equation Modeling is a flexible statistical methodology that can model mediational processes in clustered data. This 2-hour workshop will provide an introduction to the multilevel structural equation modeling (MLSEM) framework, with an emphasis on how to use MLSEM to conduct multilevel mediation analyses. An empirical example will be used to illustrate how to conduct multilevel mediation in the Mplus computing software. Participants who wish to practice with the software can download a free demo version of Mplus at
