The NMR-SF is the short form of the NMR Scale. The NMR-SF is a self-rating instrument to measure negative mood regulation expectancies. This construct is an important variable in the etiology and psychotherapy of mental disorders. The present study investigates the construct validity of the NMR-SF in 2 non-clinical samples and a sample of depressed patients. The NMR-SF was positively correlated with adaptive strategies of mood regulation and negatively with maladaptive strategies. High scores on the NMR-SF were associated with less psychopathology. There was a small positive correlation with social desirability. The results of the current study support the construct validity of the NMR-SF and indicate that its psychometric properties are good. Due to its efficiency, the NMR-SF is well applicable in clinical samples, especially when using repeated measurements designs.
