dc.description.abstractIdentifying dissociation is important for mental health services because it could fundamentally affect one's diagnosis and treatment plan. The Dissociative Experiences Scale (DES) is a widely-used self-report scale for measuring dissociative experiences. It has been translated into many languages and used in many countries. However, there is no validated Hong Kong Chinese version of the DES available in the field, and there is no other validated Hong Kong Chinese instrument for assessing dissociative disorders. This pilot study used online methods to translate the DES to Hong Kong Chinese (HKC-DES). The results indicated that the HKC-DES has excellent internal consistency ( = .953) and very good test-retest reliability (r = .797). Bilingual participants' responses to the DES and HKC-DES indicated high similarity, and were significantly correlated (r = .960). These results initially verified the reliability and cross-language equivalence of the scale. Implications for healthcare practice and research are discussed.en_US
