101 application of multilevel
This introductory workshop introduces the logic of multilevel
modeling (including when and why to use it). Workshop time
will focus on application, and participants will interact with real-world examples from longitudinal datasets geared toward adult
development and aging issues. By the end of the workshop,
participants will be able to calculate the intraclass correlation that
determines how much variance comes from each level of analysis,
match research questions to the six basic multilevel models, calculate
effect size, and interpret results so they are ready for publication.

103 culturally adapting
psychotherapy for asian
In this introductory workshop, the presenter discusses how to
combine top-down and bottom-up approaches to develop evidence-based and culturally adapted psychotherapy for Asian Americans.
He also examines how adaptations were applied in an NIMH-funded
clinical trial that tested culturally adapted vs. standard CBT in
treating depressed Chinese Americans, cultural adaptations that cut
across theoretical orientations, and examples of adaptations and the
underlying rationales for the modifications.
