In the present study are presented the adaptation studies’ of the ShortSelf-regulation Questionnaire (Carey, Neal & Collins, 2004), a measure that allows the adaptation of Impulse control and Goal setting. In the analysis of the psychometric properties of the questionnaire was found a consistent factorial structure and high reliability values. It was also studied the relation between self-regulation, resilience, with the use of the Resilience scale (Wagnild & Young, 1993), and substance use in adolescence. The results suggest a relation between self-regulation and substance use, beyond a high correlation between goal setting and resilience and a moderate correlation between resilience and impulse control. The implications of the study are discussed.
