hello. I need to test whether A has impact on D through B and C. So B and C are my mediators. Is it the same process for testing more than one mediator as for testing only one?
Model with two mediators inserted in Mplus program here is as follows:
nav by N1 N2 N3; VClat by VC1 VC2 VC3; VPPlat by VPP1 VPP2 VPP3 VPP4 ; PSClat by PSC1 PSC2; PLEAlat by pleasur1 pleasur2 pleasur3 ; ARAUlat by arousal1 arousal2 arousal3 ; ATItlat by attitud1 attitud2 attitud3 attitud4 attitud5 ; emo by ARAUlat PLEAlat;
nAV with vclat;
intent on ATItlat; EMO on nav VPPlat PSClat ; emo on VClat; ATItlat on emo;
intent ind nav; intent ind VClat; intent ind VPPlat ; intent ind PSClat;
