The Post-Traumatic Growth Inventory (PTGI) was validated for the first time in South America using a sample of 270 people exposed to the February 27, 2010, Chilean earthquake. Analyses indicated validity ranging between regular and good for the PTGI's five original dimensions. However, an alternative three-factor version (PTGI-2) proposed here also had good adjustment indicators (CMIN/df = 3.133, RMSEA = .089, NFI = .843, CFI = .887, PNFI = .747). The new proposed structure is discussed in order to contribute to the debate on the constructs that compose it. We recommend use of the PTGI-2 because it has higher theoretical consistency and is more parsimonious.
