The Profile of Mood States Second Edition (POMS 2) instruments allow for the quick assessment of transient, fluctuating feelings and enduring affect states.
AREAS OF APPLICATION
The POMS is applicable in clinical, medical, and research settings, enabling monitoring of treatment and evaluation, as well as clinical trials.
Assessment Reports provide detailed information about scores from a single administration, presented both numerically and graphically. An individual's scores are compared to those in the normative sample and elevations at the scale and subscale level are indicated.
Progress Reports compare the results of two to four administrations for the same individual to measure changes over time. These reports are ideal to use when monitoring treatment and intervention effectiveness.
SOUTH AFRICAN RESEARCH
Although the POMS 2 does not have South African norms, JVR Psychometrics welcomes the opportunity to partner with clients in conducting research studies in their organisations.
