Abstract
Emotional processing refers to the set of strategies used from the moment an emotion is perceived until it is expressed. A correct emotional processing promotes a healthy and adaptive development whilst difficulties in processing have been linked to psychopathological problems like anxiety and depression. The EPS-25 is a five factor questionnaire that assesses these difficulties. The objective of the present study was to validate the factor structure of the EPS-25 in Spanish, as well as to assess its validity and reliability. The sample, 605 participants (M = 18.30; SD = 1.75), was recruited from Spanish schools and universities. A confirmatory factor analysis was carried out to confirm the questionnaire s original structure in its Spanish validation. The adapted version of the EPS-25 shows adequate internal consistency (α = .91). Therefore, the Spanish version of the EPS-25 is a valid and reliable five factor instrument to measure emotional processing.
