The Emotional Processing Scale – Wellbeing (EPS-W) is a 25-item questionnaire for identifying vulnerabilities to stress, improving wellbeing, and building resilience in the workplace.
Use in coaching and development across all organisational levels, or as part of a wellbeing intervention.
The EPS-W presents respondents with 25 statements and asks them to rate how much each statement applies to the way they felt or acted during the past week. Several subscales are measured, and a total emotional processing score is generated.
The EPS-W Technical Report and Personal Insight Report have been created to help occupational psychologists and employees understand and enhance the way in which they handle emotions and specific situations (and not to be used in the context of employee selection).
The measure can be used to:
The EPS-W can provide useful insights into how individuals and teams manage change, transitions, and challenges in roles. Some example areas of application include:
The EPS-W follows the success of the original Emotional Processing Scale (EPS), which was published in 2015 for use in clinical settings. Administered online via the Hogrefe Testsystem (HTS), the EPS-W features a new Guide to Interpretation and Feedback, Technical Report and Personal Insight Report for relating the EPS questionnaire results to individuals in a work context.
Users of the EPS-W will require both the EPS Manual and the Guide to Interpretation and Feedback. These are available as a digital combined package from this page. Alternatively, the EPS Manual is available to purchase separately here in both print and digital formats.
Contact Hogrefe to discuss using the EPS-W at your organisation at firstname.lastname@example.org or +44 (0)1865 797920.
