Evidence for a unique PTSD construct represented by PTSD's D1-D3 symptoms.
TLDR
Recruitment of 252 women victims of domestic violence and confirmatory factor analytic findings demonstrated that separating the three PTSD symptoms into a separate factor significantly enhanced model fit for the Emotional Numbing and Dysphoria models. Expand
Development and validation of a brief self-report measure of trauma exposure: the Trauma History Screen.
TLDR
The psychometric properties of the THS appear to be comparable or better than longer and more complex measures of trauma exposure, and it provides detailed information about PPD events. Expand
Posttraumatic stress disorder in DSM-5: estimates of prevalence and symptom structure in a nonclinical sample of college students.
TLDR
Empirically investigated recent proposed changes to the posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) diagnosis for DSM-5 using a non-clinical sample and found neither symptom set's factors were more correlated with depression. Expand
The (un)reasonableness of reporting: antecedents and consequences of reporting sexual harassment.
TLDR
It is argued that organizational responses to reports (i.e., organizational remedies, organizational minimization, and retaliation) as well as procedural satisfaction can account for these negative effects of reporting. Expand
Confirmatory factor analysis of the PTSD Checklist and the Clinician-Administered PTSD Scale in disaster workers exposed to the World Trade Center Ground Zero.
TLDR
Confirmatory factor analysis was used to compare a self-report measure, the PTSD Checklist, and a structured clinical interview, the Clinician-Administered PTSD Scale, in 2,960 utility workers exposed to the World Trade Center Ground Zero site, finding the latent structure of the PCL was slightly better represented by correlated reexperiencing, avoidance, dysphoria, and hyperarousal factors. Expand
The factor structure of posttraumatic stress disorder: a literature update, critique of methodology, and agenda for future research.
TLDR
An update of recent literature exploring the factor structure of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptom measures is presented, with research supporting a four-factor emotional numbing model and aFour-factor dysphoria model fitting better than all other models examined. Expand
Reducing depression in stroke survivors and their informal caregivers: a randomized clinical trial of a Web-based intervention.
TLDR
CGs benefit from Web-based programs that help them better understand both their emotional needs and those of the SS, and posttreatment changes on some constructs were significantly correlated with change in depression. Expand
Examining the structural validity of the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ) in a U.S. sample of custodial grandmothers.
TLDR
Structural validity of the parent informant version of the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire was evidenced by measurement invariance across grandparent race and grandchild gender and age, a conceptually meaningful pattern of cross-scale correlations, and the acceptable internal reliability estimates found for each subscale. Expand
Contrasting patterns of brain activity in anxious apprehension and anxious arousal.
TLDR
Compared the regional brain activity of groups of anxious apprehension and anxious arousal participants, selected on the basis of self-report measures previously shown to be psychometrically distinct from each other and from a specific measure of depression, to provide further support for contrasting patterns of brain activity in distinct types of anxiety. Expand
Confirmatory factor analysis of posttraumatic stress symptoms in sexually harassed women.
TLDR
Seven hypothesized factor structures were evaluated using confirmatory factor analysis of the Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Checklist and different patterns of correlations with external variables were found for the avoidance and emotional numbing factors, providing further validation of the supported model.
