Event description

Description


BPS Developmental Section Conference, Wednesday 13th September 2017.

The third seminar takes a workshop approach to provide training and discussion around complex or innovative methods and analyses. The first focus will be on longitudinal designs and associated analytic techniques (cross-lagged panel analysis, latent growth curve modeling). Following an overview, attendees will have the chance to run simple models using MPlus/AMOS. The workshop will then proceed to consider Critical Incident Technique interviews, with a focus on bystanders (led by Prof Ian Rivers).

Event details: The seminar will be held at 9.00-12.00 in the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Stratford-upon-Avon, CV37 6YR.

Draft Program for Seminar 3: Methodological approaches to understanding bullying in schools.

09.00:

Welcome – Prof Patrick Leman (Dean of Education IoPPN at King’s College London; Editor, BJDP) and Dr Simon Hunter (Seminar Series Co-Organiser, University of Strathclyde; Associate Editor, BJDP)

09.15:

More is better? Research benefits of a four-wave longitudinal design. Overview of the benefits of a multi-stage, longitudinal cohort design. Summary of key research questions which this can enable, including: Describing and predicting the nature of change over time; moderation; mediation; reciprocal causation.

09.45:

Hands-on experience of analyses.

Participants will conduct a cross-lagged panel analysis and will estimate a latent variable growth curve model. NB All attendees must ensure that they have either MPlus or AMOS on their own laptop in order to run these statistical models.

11.00:

Critical Incident Technique interviews with witnesses of bullying.

CIT is an approach drawn from industry and is used to understand why accidents occur and what could have been done to prevent them. It is rarely used with children and young people (though it has been used to assist clinicians understand why treatment regimes in Type 1 Diabetes fail). It has been recommended for use with adults involved in bullying situations (Cowie et al., 2002). In this workshop the application of CIT will focus on the role of the bystander. Specifically, it will look at ways to:

  • Identify critical and illustrative incidents of bullying;
  • Reported reactions to the incident (decision to intervene or not);
  • Indices of one or more key factors that influenced the decision to intervene or not.

This final session is presented by Prof Ian Rivers (University of Strathclyde).
