Description

The POMS 2 instruments assess the mood states of individuals 13 years of age and older. A revision of the Profile of Mood States, the self-report scales are a collection of tools that allow for the quick assessment of transient, fluctuating feelings, and enduring affect states. The tool is applicable in clinical, medical, research, and athletic settings, where its sensitivity to change makes the assessment ideal for treatment monitoring and evaluation, as well as clinical trials.

 

Features

  • Established clinical and research utility.
  • Large normative samples representative of the U.S. population.
  • Updated adult norms that include norm groups for 18-29, 30-49, & 50+, as well as the option of a 60+ norm group
  • Includes a new youth version for individuals 13-17 years old
  • Full-length and short versions available to suit varying assessor
  • Flexible administration options - online and paper forms
  • Easy administration, scoring, and interpretation of results

 

Scales

  • Anger-Hostility
  • Confusion-Bewilderment
  • Depression-Dejection
  • Fatigue-Inertia
  • Tension-Anxiety
  • Vigor-Activity

 

Forms

The POMS 2 covers two age ranges: adults aged 18 years and older (POMS 2-A) and adolescents 13 to 17 years of age (POMS 2-Y). Both POMS 2 instruments are available as full-length and short versions, and can be administered using online or paper-and-pencil formats. All formats are scored online using the MHS Online Assessment Center.

POMS 2 Full-Length Versions
The POMS 2-A is comprised of 65 items, while the POMS 2-Y is comprised of 60. These full-length versions yield several scale scores: Anger-Hostility, Confusion- Bewilderment, Depression-Dejection, Fatigue-Inertia, Tension-Anxiety, and Vigor-Activity. Total Mood Disturbance is a function of these six scale sc ores. The Friendliness scale is scored separately. These comprehensive versions are recommended for use when a thorough evaluation of mood is desired.

POMS 2 Short Versions
The POMS 2 short versions contain a subset of 35 items from the full-length versions. This subset comprises those five items on each of the POMS 2-A and POMS 2-Y scales that exhibited good item-total correlations and best predicted their respective scale scores. Short versions provide an efficient means for determining the need for additional assessment or services. These versions are useful when cursory evaluations or multiple administrations are required, for monitoring and evaluating treatment/intervention programs.
