Non-suicidal self-inflicted injury (NSSI) is a direct injury that causes damage to body tissue in the absence of lethal intent. In recent years, there has been an increase in the number of NSSI in the general population, especially in adolescents. Within the complexity of this phenomenon, impulsivity has been an element of interest, which seems to be associated with a higher risk for them. Objective: To describe the prevalence of internalizing symptoms and impulsivity in patients aged 12 to 16 years attending child psychiatry consultation at the Clínica Nuestra Señora de La Paz with self-inflicted cutting injuries during a 3-month period. Methodology: Descriptive cross-sectional study. Through the completion of DASS-21 and BIS-11C scales. Expected results: to hypothesize the possible risk profiles for self-injurious behavior, which have an impact on clinical practice.
