Area of use

The Emotional Processing Scale (EPS) is a short questionnaire designed to identify emotional processing styles and potential deficits. The EPS is for use by clinicians working in mental health, psychological therapy and health psychology, as well as researchers interested in the emotional life of healthy individuals and other populations.

Qualification Level C

Language Versions

English, German

Product Description

The EPS can be used to:

  • identify and quantify healthy and unhealthy styles of emotional processing;
  • assess the contribution of poor emotional processing to physical, psychosomatic and psychological disorders;
  • provide a non-diagnostic framework to assess patients for research or therapy;
  • measure changes in emotions during therapy/counselling;
  • and assist therapists in incorporating an emotional component into their formulations of psychological therapy.

The EPS provides the individual with a series of 25 statements to rate as to their applicability of how they felt or acted during the last week. The EPS uses five subscales (Suppression, Signs of unprocessed emotion, Controllability of emotion, Avoidance, and Emotional experience) to generate a total emotional processing score.

Both internal consistency and split-half reliability coefficients are outlined in the manual for five datasets, including the overall healthy norm group. All coefficients are more than sufficient to represent strong reliability of the test.

Test Validity

The EPS has been validated against existing assessment scales showing meaningful relationships with the regulation of emotion and psychological symptoms of anxiety and depression. It has also been shown to be predictive of postnatal depression.


Healthy community population (N=1,383)
