Abstract Separation anxiety disorder is characterized by developmentally inappropriate levels of excessive fear or anxiety concerning separation from those to whom the individual is attached to. The objective of the present study was to examine factorial structure, internal consistency and convergent validity of the abbreviated version of the ASA-27. The sample comprised 403 Spanish people (55.8% female) aged between 18 and 86 years (M=37.1; SD=13.9). ASA-10 was significantly related to all the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory, Adult Attachment Questionnaire and Emotional Dependency Questionnaire subscales (rs=.11 to .63, ps<.05). ASA-10 presented a single-factor structure and appropriate internal consistency (?=.98). ASA-10 showed a sensitivity of 97.9% for cases with clinical anxiety difficulties. In conclusion, the results show that the ASA-10 is a reliable and valid measure of separation anxiety in adults. © 2021 AIDEP. All rights reserved.
