MALTONI, Juliana et al. Cultural adaptation of the health behaviour protocol in school-aged children for the brazilian reality. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2019, vol.21, n.3, pp. 77-92. ISSN 1516-3687.

Adolescence is a period of intense transformations, and these may be inherent or present risks to development. Adolescent health directly influences on individual and society future trajectories, assuring the need for research about this life span stage. The Health Behaviour in School-aged Children task force, together with World Health Organization (HBSC-WHO), has been conducting health surveys for more than 30 years with its protocol, with approximately 40 countries in North America and Europe. This work aimed to present the translation and cultural adaptation process of the HBSC instrument for the Brazilian reality. This is the first study to carry out the adaptation of this instrument in Brazil. The process used the translation of judges, a committee, evaluation in the target public, and pilot study. It was concluded by the satisfactory adaptation of the instrument to the Brazilian reality, being configured as Questionnaire HBSC Brazil.

Palavras-chave : translating; cultural adaptation; health surveys; adolescent health; HBSC.
