The method of the present research was applied in terms of its purpose and structural equation model in terms of correlation method. All secondary school students of the second period of Ardabil city with a history of self-harm in the academic year of 2023-2024 formed the statistical population of the present study. 280 of these people were selected and participated in the present study through purposive sampling. Achenbach's (2001) list of children's behavioral problems, Tanji, Baumeister and Boone's (2004) self-control questionnaire and Kuhei's (2009) mobile phone addiction questionnaire were used to collect data.

The results of this study showed that externalizing problems in a sample of self-harming teenagers can play a role both directly and through the mediation of self-control in the use of harmful smartphones by teenagers.
