VIANA, Miguel Faro; ALMEIDA, Pedro Lopes de  and  SANTOS, Rita C.. Adaptação portuguesa da versão reduzida do Perfil de Estados de Humor: POMS. Aná. Psicológica [online]. 2001, vol.19, n.1, pp.77-92. ISSN 0870-8231.

This work presents the results of the Portuguese adaptation of the short version of the Profile of Mood States (POMS; McNair, Loor & Droppleman, 1971). The Portuguese version of the POMS was administered to 373 athletes and non-athletes. This study presents the results of an exploratory factor analysis, internal consistency and the differences between gender and athletes and non-athletes. The factor structure is valid and consistent with the original one. The internal coefficients are adequate and the inter group differences are also align with the results published in the literature. This version of the POMS provide valid and reliable measures of mood states in athletes and non athletes. The adaptation of the instrument to Portugal should continue with larger samples, and specially with psychiatric subjects.

Keywords : POMS; Profile of Mood States; adaptation to Portugal.
