Abstract

Post-traumatic growth (PTG) is the experience of positive changes that can follow a traumatic event. The current study examined the factorial as well as the discriminant validity of the German version of the Post-traumatic Growth Inventory (PTGI-G) in stroke patients. A total of 188 adult stroke patients (63.3 male; median age 69-years) completed the PTGI-G and the German version of the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS-D) at the end of their inpatient rehabilitation. Confirmatory factor analyses indicate an acceptable model fit of both the original five-factor solution as well as a second-order factor model of the PTGI-G (CFI >.95; RMSEA
