The objective of the present study was to investigate internal structure validity evidence of the Brazilian version of the California Older Person's Pleasant Events Schedule (COPPES-BR), an instrument to evaluate the involvement of older adults in pleasurable activities, which can be used in clinical context for the treatment of depression. To that end, an exploratory factor analysis was performed in a Brazilian sample of 337 non-institutionalized older adult individuals with no cognitive impairment, with a mean age of 69.7 years, of which 68.2% were female. It was observed that COPPES-BR covered four domains: Social Activities and Competence, Contemplative Activities, Practical Activities, and Intellectual Activities, accounting for 43.6% of the total variance. This factor structure still needs to be confirmed in a second sample of Brazilian seniors through confirmatory factor analysis. However, the results obtained already provide validity evidence of the internal structure of COPPES-BR, suggesting possibilities of application in contexts of interventions and research with Brazilian seniors.
