Resumen

MAGALLARES, Alejandro  y  TALO, Cosimo. Spanish adaptation of the Participatory Behaviors Scale (PBS). Psychosocial Intervention [online]. 2016, vol.25, n.1, pp.39-44. ISSN 2173-4712.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.psi.2015.09.003.

The aim of this study was to adapt the Participatory Behaviors Scale (PBS) and validate the results for use among the Spanish population. Using snowball sampling methodology, 501 individuals from all areas of Spain were selected to participate in the study. The Participatory Behaviors Scale (PBS) and questionnaires that measure a sense of community, belief in a just world and Machiavellianism were used to analyze the criterion validity of the adapted scale. A confirmatory factor analysis indicated that the items on the questionnaire fit a second-order model with four factors, which corresponded to the four dimensions proposed by the original authors, namely, disengagement, civil participation, formal political participation and activism. Additionally, it has been found that the scale is related to a sense of community, belief in a just world and Machiavellianism. In light of these results, we concluded that the questionnaire is methodologically valid and can be used by the scientific community to measure participatory behavior.

Palabras clave : Participatory Behaviors Scale; Sense of community; Belief in a just world; Machiavellianism; Confirmatory factor analysis.
