The RTSHIA is a self-report questionnaire that assesses simultaneously risk-taking and self-harm behaviors. This questionnaire includes two subscales assessing separately risk-taking behaviors and self-injurious behaviors. The items contain the word intentionally, or end with the phrase to hurt yourself or to hurt or punish yourself and are rated on a 4-point scale (0 = never; 3 = many times), referring to the lifelong history.
