This study presents the Romanian version of Endler Multidimensional Anxiety Scale (EMAS). Psychometric properties were assessed in different clinical and non-clinical groups of adolescents and adults (N = 931) from different parts of the country. Results provide evidence for the reliability and validity of EMAS in reference to stressful and non-stressful situations for different adolescent and adult groups, being in concordance with the original version of EMAS. The study indicates that the EMAS is a useful instrument for assessing state and trait anxiety for Romanian population.
