This study explores the psychometric properties of the Spanish adaptation of the Mood Spectrum Self-Report (MOODS-SR), an instrument designed to assess a broad range of manifestations of mood psychopathology. A total of 71 Spanish subjects participated: 49 outpatients who met criteria for a mood disorder or generalized anxiety disorder, and 22 normal controls. The instrument proved to have good internal consistency and test–retest reliability. Significant positive correlations were found between the depressive subdomains of the questionnaire and the Beck Depression Inventory, as well as between the manic–hypomanic subdomains and the Clinician-Administered Rating Scale for Mania. Clinical subjects displayed higher mean scores than normal subjects in all domains, and patients with bipolar disorder displayed higher scores than patients with unipolar disorder in the Manic component, particularly in the Energy and the Cognition subdomains. Differences between patients with generalized anxiety and mood disorders were small. The former, however, did not differ from normal controls in several subdomains, whereas patients with mood disorders did.
