    I'm doing a psychology project and I'm struggling with statistics (SPSS) especially on meditational analysis. I have searched all over my notes from my bachelor degree but there is nothing on meditational analyses whatsoever. There were hardly any steps shown, only results are provided in all the journals I read from web of science. I’m also confused on inputting variables (there are loads of variables). I seeked help from my department but the help given will be taken into consideration when we are graded.

    This is my final project and I’m extremely worried cause it means a lot to me as I put a lot of hard work in my postgraduate. Please help if you can, I’m panicking (emoticon)

    P.S. The whole question is quite long, if you don't mind please pm me, I'm happy to give you all the details.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Top result looks good to check out (given that you can do regressions on SPSS).

    All i know about mediation is that if your hypothesis is that var B mediates variables A & C, then you need to have significant correlations between A->C & A->B & B->C.
    You can also do mediation analysis using structural equation modelling which i think gives you quite neat path estimates, although you have to learn MPLUS (it would take at most a week to learn MPLUS and the relevant stats i think for this).

    Hello,
    I am doing this for my masters thesis. Look at Andy Field's Section on mediation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqkG...ature=youtu.be. Also if you can get his book "Discovering Statistics with SPSS" that is brillant. Haye's book on conditional analysis is also good. If you want me to take a look then e-mail me at [email protected]
