The Clinician-Administered Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Scale (CAPS) (D. Blake et al., 1990) was administered to 524 treatment-seeking male military veterans. Confirmatory factor analysis results indicate that the best fit is a four-factor first-order solution with moderately to highly correlated first factors of reexperiencing, effortful avoidance, emotional numbing, and hyperarousal.
