SIMKIN, Hugo; MATRANGOLO, Gisela  and  AZZOLLINI, Susana. Argentine validation of the Brief Centrality of Event Scale. Subj. procesos cogn. [online]. 2017, vol.21, n.2, pp.205-216. ISSN 1852-7310.

The abbreviated Centrality of the Event Scale, developed by Berntsen and Rubin (2006), is one of the most applied to evaluate the centrality that a particular traumatic event holds in the development of identity. Since no adaptations of the technique have been recorded in the Argentine context, this work is an attempt to evaluate its psychometric properties in a non-probabilistic sample consisting of 429 students of middle and upper level of both sexes residing in the city of Buenos Aires. According to the results, the scale presents appropriate psychometric properties for its application in the local context. It is suggested that future studies employ different populations so that the construct can acquire greater strength.
