Acute Stress Disorder (ASD) was introduced in the Diagnostic and Statisti- 12 cal Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV) to account for stress symptoms appearing 13 within the first month after a trauma exposure. However, there is scant literature 14 assessing the validity of models pertaining to ASD, particularly among Asian adoles- 15 cent samples. This study aims to address this gap by examining the latent structure of 16 five proposed models of ASD among adolescent survivors of a deadly flash flood. Two 17 hundred twenty-five (225) respondents were assessed using the Acute Stress Disorder 18 Interview within a month after a flash flood disaster. Series of confirmatory factor 19 analyses indicated that a five-factor inter-correlated model (dissociation, intrusion, 20 avoidance, dysphoric arousal and anxious arousal) yielded a more nuanced structure 21 that portrays the subtleties in the data that are glossed over and missed by one-factor 22 DSM-5 and even other multifactor models.
