    The aim of this study was to describe the psychometric properties of the Farsi Form of the Arabic Scale of Death Anxiety (ASDA). The original scale was first translated into Farsi by language experts using the back translation procedure and then administered to a total of Iranian college students and 52 psychiatric outpatients from psychiatric and psychological clinics. The one-week test. Two studies examined death anxiety across the adult years. In the first study, men and women between 18 and 87 years completed the Collett-Lester Fear of Death scale. Death anxiety peaked in both men and women during their 20s and declined significantly thereafter. However, women displayed a secondary spike during their 50s not seen in men.

    Death Anxiety: An Analysis of an Evolving Concept Rebecca Helen Lehto, PhD, RN, OCN an extensive online literature search was conducted for this study. Rodgers s () articles that dealt with measurement issues of the death anxiety concept were placed together and were summarized as a data collective. FINDINGS A TTRIBUTES OF D EATH A. This study developed and validated a new measure to assess the death anxiety (i.e., Scale of Death Anxiety, SDA) on an individual’s somatic, cognitive, emotional, and behavioral reactions from a symptomatic perspective in Chinese youth samples. Following a systematic process, a four-factor structure of the SDA was identified.

      They completed the DOS, Death Concern Scale, Collett-Lester Fear of Death Scale, Death Anxiety Scale, Reasons for Death Fear Scale, and Death Depression Scale. Results Cronbach's α for the DOS was , and 2-week test-retest reliability was () reported that the test-retest reliability for the optimism scale was, whereas the test-retest reliability of the pessimism scale was Additionally, these scales were shown to be significantly related to mea­ sures of happiness. The DAS consists of 15 true-false items. This instrument has been shown to have a test-retest.

David Lester is the author of the first critical survey of death anxiety measures, and has developed his own scales and conducted numerous studies in the realms of suicide as well as the fear of death. Donald Templer developed his Death Anxiety Scale (DAS) in response to Lester's critique of existing measures [2, 3].Cited by:   The Death Anxiety Scale (DAS), developed by Templer () nearly 50 years ago, represents one classic attempt to study the latter area.

Still today, despite sustained contributions to research and instrumentation in this field, it remains the most popular measure of death attitudes in the literature. This article publishes the Lester Attitude Toward Death Scale for the first time, together with data on its reliability and validity.

The scale is different from other fear of death scales in its. Abstract This paper reviews research using the Collett-Lester fear of death scale and finds that the scale has acceptable reliability and validity.

A revised version of the scale includes a more balanced number of items in each subscale, and a simplified scoring system. This paper presents both the original and the revised versions of the by: ized anxiety disorder, 20 with phobias, 17 with obsessive-compulsive dis-order, 13 with panic disorder, and 14 with other anxiety disorders.

They were administered the Beck Anxiety Inventory (Beck & Steer, ), Tem-pler's Death Anxiety Scale (), and Lester's Helplessness, Hopeless-ness, and Haplessness Scale ().

Abstract This article reports on the development and factor analysis of a Revised Death Anxiety Scale that has an acceptable level of reliability (Cronbach alpha—) and that has been shown to be age-sensitive.

Five studies using different versions of the scale are detailed, and data differentiating constructions of death anxiety for those high and for those low in death anxiety are. representing the lowest level of death anxiety. Studies reporting test-retest reliability, factor analyses, correlates for occupation, and correlates for illness and disease have confirmed validation of the revised CL-FODS in identifying death anxiety indicators using the new item instrument with its 5-point Likert scale.

conscious form (i.e., explicit) of death anxiety among people who live in Turkey. Several self-report instruments have been developed for the purpose of assessing levels of death anxiety: The Collett-Lester Fear of Death Scale (Lester & Abdel-Khalek, ), the Templer Death Anxiety Scale (DAS) and its revisions (Templer, ; Templer.

To know the level of death anxiety using the Templer Death Anxiety Scale (DAS) () (Ramos's Spanish adaptation, )) we chose subjects older than 65 years (N = ) to study.

The Death Anxiety Scale (DAS), developed by Templer () nearly 50 years ago, represents one classic attempt to study the latter area. Still today, despite sustained contributions to research and instrumentation in this field, it remains the most popular measure of death attitudes in the literature. This study reports on the test-retest reliability of DSM-IV anxiety symptoms and diagnoses with the ADIS for DSM-IV: C/P (Silverman and Albano, ) in a sample of children (aged 7–16 years) referred to a childhood anxiety disorders specialty clinic.

Retest reliability was. dividuals ranging in age from 30 to 82 years completed the Death Anxiety Ques-tionnaire (DAQ), a brief anxiety scale (MAS), and a depression scale (DP).

During Stage 2, results on these scales were cross-validated on a new sample of subjects, and the Templer and Dickstein measures of death anxiety. The present study focused to adapt and validate the Death Anxiety Scale developed by Donald Templer.

It is the most reliable and used psychometric test available to measure death anxiety it has been translated in more than 26 languages.

Therefore, the scale was selected for translation in urdu. Validity and Reliability of the Multidimensional Fear of Death Scale What do we fear when we fear death. Although this question would seem fundamental to the study of death anxiety, it was in fact treated as relatively unproblematic for the first 25 years of empirical research in this area, from the mids through the late s (Neimeyer.

The first step was a scale validation of Farsi version of collet-lester fear of death scale, which was accomplished via a linguistic validation and the Cronbach Coefficient Alpha, split-half reliability coefficient and concurrent validity (by computation the correlation coefficients of the Farsi form with Templer Death Anxiety Scale (DAS)).

first researchers to attempt to construct a scale that is both a. reliable and valid means to measure the fear of death (Lester, ). Lester () constructed a scale to assess individuals'.

The purpose of the present research was to construct a Death Anxiety Scale– Extended. Gough and the Collett-Lester Fear of Death Scale, which measures death anxiety in the following four domains: fear of own death, fear of own dying, fear of death of others, and fear of dying of others.

For females, scores on the Femininity Scale were correlated with fear of dying of others (r). For males, scores on the Femininity Scale were. By contrast, the loadings of the Death Anxiety Scale (DAS), Death Depression Scale (DDS), and Death Obsession Scale (DOS) ranged between and The correlation of RDFS to DAS was higher than that to general anxiety.

The Cronbach's α reliability was in RDFS but was in another sample. Higher points indicate higher death anxiety. This scale was translated to Turkish also validity and reliability study of it was done by Karaca and Yıldız It was found to be a valid and reliable scale to measure death anxiety in researches.

In this study correlation coefficient was and homogenity measure Cronbach α was proposed as Death anxiety handbook: research, instrumentation, and application‎ Robert A.

Neimeyer - Family & Relationships - - pages Presenting a broad coverage of this major area of studies on death and dying, this book provides a systematic presentation of the six most widely used and best validated measures of death anxiety, threat and fear 5/5(4).This study was conducted to determine the validity and reliability of Death Anxiety Scale (DAS), a scale designed by Templer to () to assess the death anxiety, a scale which has been used extensively for research.
