Assess your own mood and get feedback - The purpose of this website is to provide a platform for an online mood assessment that is capable of interpreting mood responses. This assessment is based on the Brunel Mood Scale (BRUMS: Terry, Lane & Fogarty, 2003) that was developed to provide a quick assessment of mood states among adolescent and adult populations. For more information about the BRUMS, please click on the about the measure tab. More importantly, this website provides effective mood regulation strategies based on the pattern of completed responses in the BRUMS. These mood regulation strategies are designed to get you in the right mood to facilitate performance as you prepare for that important task ahead.

British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies - The BABCP is the lead organisation for cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) in the UK. We expect that the outputs of our research will help inform new developments in CBT to help people with emotional problems. In April 2009, we presented some of the first outputs of our EROS grant to this organisation. We plan to disseminate our work at future conferences including the annual conferences at the University of Exeter 15th -18th July 2009 and University of Manchester 21st -23rd July 2010.
