The purpose of this event is to bring together researchers in the areas of clinical psychology, causal inference, mediation analysis, and analysis of single-subject experimental data with the goal of generating and testing ideas that will ultimately result in new statistical methods for causal mediation analysis using repeated measures data from a single participant.
The workshop “Single Subject Causal Mediation Analysis” is a 5-day meeting of up to 55 participants designed to bring together researchers in the areas of clinical psychology, causal inference, mediation analysis, and analysis of single-subject experimental data. The goal of the meeting it to generate viable ideas for new statistical methods for evaluating causal mediated effects in single subject data that are often collected in clinical settings. The meeting will consist of a mix of presentations, discussion, and interactive group activities where participants will get a chance to test their ideas for new methods using various datasets. Participants will have the opportunity to develop ideas for either a grant application or a scientific paper in their small groups and to receive feedback from other participants. We hope that this workshop will lead to many new collaborations between the attendees, and that the ideas exchanged during the meeting will give rise to new statistical methods that can be used in fields such as clinical psychology and personalized medicine.
