This paper aims to adapt and validate the Risk-taking and Self-harm Inventory for Adolescents (RTSHIA) in Portuguese language. Results confirm the two-factor structure originally proposed (Risk-taking; Self-harm). Both dimensions presented an adequate internal reliability and temporal stability. Convergent validity and socio-demographic differences are analyzed. Preventive and clinical implications are discussed.
