The Emotional Processing Scale (EPS) is a 25-item questionnaire designed to identify emotional processing styles and potential deficits. Developed over the course of 12 years by an experienced team, 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.
The EPS can be used to:
1. Identify and quantify healthy and unhealthy styles of emotional processing;
2. Assess the contribution of poor emotional processing to physical, psychosomatic and psychological disorders;
3. Provide a non-diagnostic framework to assess patients for research or therapy;
4. Measure changes in emotions during therapy/counselling;
5. Assist therapists in incorporating an emotional component into their formulations of psychological therapy.
