This paper aims to develop a Spanish version of the Multidimensional Fear of Death Scale (MFODS) and explore its psychometric properties. The MFODS includes eight independent subscales that measure specific aspects of fear of death. A total of 677 participants (Mage= 35.9, SD= 14.47), grouped into three samples (undergraduate students and adults from training and employment workshops, people with mental disorders, and social care providers), responded to the Spanish version of the MFODS and to two instruments to assess attitudes towards death. The factor structure obtained supported structural stability. A high order bi-factorial structure appeared. Both internal consistency and reliability indices were obtained. A moderated convergent validity was calculated. These results justify the usefulness of MFODS to assess attitudes towards death among Spaniards.
