The Scale for Mood States Assessment [EVEA, Sanz, J. (2001). Análisis y Modificación de Conducta, 27, 71-110] is an instrument designed for measuring transitory moods with a clinical entity (depression, anxiety, hostility and happiness). This scale was administered to a sample of 140 participants. 40 of these participants were assigned to task of disclosure of traumatic emotional experiences or task to write about trivial events, to know the ability to monitor changes in mood. In addition to EVEA, PANAS scale were administered to assess positive and negative affect. The results showed the consistency of the scale, structural adjustment and its ability to detect changes in mood, especially in depression mood state, similar to PANAS negative affectivity.
