## Meta-analysis workshops and tutorials

My meta-analysis workshops are geared toward those who are either (1) new to meta-analysis, (2) have a working knowledge of it, or (3) have expertise but are interested in conducting their analyses within the R statistical software programming environment (using metafor and MAd packages). The workshops offer a combination of didactic and 'hands-on' experiences. Typically, we begin by introducing the rationale for meta-analysis as a method for summarizing existing research studies and then proceed to demonstrate basic (and advanced) meta-analytic techniques using real data from studies that have been published in our labs.

Participants are provided with the free (open-source) meta-analysis packages and R code to follow along with every step in the analysis. For users not familiar with the R statistical software program, we generally proceed by demonstrating the graphical user interface (GUI; i.e., menu-driven "point-and-click" interface--similar to SPSS) version of the meta-analysis packages in R.

Details regarding some of these workshops/tutorials is provided below, along with slides.

The workshop slides below were presented in 2012 at the Society for
Psychotherapy Research in Virginia Beach.

**NOTE: This GUI has now been updated (RcmdrPlugin.MA) with additional functionality for conducting meta-analyses by integrating functions from both the 'metafor' (Viechtbauer, 2010) and the 'MAd' (Del Re, 2010) package for meta-analyses in R.**
