MARALDI, Everton de Oliveira  e  ZANGARI, Wellington. Validity evidence of the Dissociative Experiences Scale in a nonclinical sample. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2016, vol.15, n.1, pp. 93-104. ISSN 1677-0471.

The aim of this paper is to present the psychometric properties, factor structure and evidence of convergent validity of the Brazilian version of the Dissociative Experiences Scale (DES) in a non-clinical sample. The study included 1,450 respondents (67.9% male), 18 and older (M=29.32; SD=11.27), from several Brazilian states, who joined an online survey about the role of dissociative experiences in religious practices and their relation to sociodemographic and psychopathological variables. The exploratory factor analysis indicated that the best solution would be tri-factorial. The factors were named as absorption, depersonalization/derealization and amnesia. The Brazilian DES denoted satisfactory internal consistency. The DES also correlated positively with expected variables, as measures of somatization and conversion symptoms, and reports of religious experiences. Participants with a score greater than or equal to 30 in the DES presented significantly higher scores in emotional abuse, physical abuse and sexual abuse
