Bayesian mediation analysis with N = 1 – Milica Miočević
Single-Case Experimental Designs (SCEDs) are a useful tool for evaluating therapy effectiveness in heterogeneous and low-incidence conditions. Mediation analysis informs researchers about the mechanism through which the intervention leads to changes in the outcome of interest. Hypotheses about mediated effects are often phrased in terms of within-person processes but evaluated using group-level analyses. In recent years there have been several proposed methods for mediation analysis using repeated measures data on the mediator and outcome of a single participant in at least two treatment phases. In this talk I will describe the most promising Bayesian methods for mediation analysis in SCEDs.
