Until the present moment, there have been no validated instruments for a systematic assessment of anomalous world experiences in Portuguese. The Examination of Anomalous World Experiences (EAWE) is an interview designed to investigate such experiences. Our study was intended to perform a cross-cultural adaptation of the Examination of Anomalous World Experiences (EAWE) into Portuguese. Our findings suggest that the Portuguese version of the EAWE could be used for researching anomalous subjectivity in mental disorders in the Portuguese-speaking population.
