Mehmet KAYA [1] , Ümit SAHRANÇ [2] , Eyüp ÇELİK [3]


Bu araştırmada, araştırmanın değişkenleri olan; heyecan arayışı, kendini gizleme ve şiddete yönelik tutum arasındaki ilişkiler incelenmiştir. Bunun yanı sıra kendini gizleme ve heyecan arayışının, erken ergenlikte şiddete yönelik tutumu yordama düzeyi belirlenmeye çalışılmıştır. Araştırma, ilişkisel tarama yöntemi ile gerçekleştirilmiştir. Araştırma verileri; Kısa Heyecan Arayışı Ölçeği, Kendini Gizleme Ölçeği ve Ergenler İçin Şiddete Yönelik Tutum Ölçeği’nin 393 ergene uygulanmasıyla toplanmıştır. Katılımcılar 12-15 yaş arasındaki 3 farklı devlet okulunda 6. 7. ve 8. sınıfa devam eden  öğrencilerden oluşmaktadır. Araştırmaya katılanların %50’si kız öğrencidir. Veriler Pearson korelasyon katsayısı ve aşamalı regresyon analizi ile incelenmiştir. Araştırma sonucunda şiddete yönelik tutumun, hem heyecan arayışı hem de kendini gizleme ile ilişkili olduğu görülmüştür. Aşamalı regresyon analizi sonucu, kendini gizleme ve heyecan arayışının şiddete yönelik tutumu yordadığını ortaya koymuştur. Heyecan arayışının ergenlerde şiddete yönelik tutumu yordayan önemli bir değişken olduğu sonucuna ulaşılmıştır. Araştırmadan elde edilen bulgular ışığında, heyecan arayışının yönelimine ve öğrencileri destekleyici ortamlara ilişkin öğretmenlere  ve psikolojik danışmanlara yönelik önerilere yer verilmiştir.

In this study, the variables of the research; relationships between excitement seeking, self-concealment and attitudes towards violence were also examined. In addition, this study investigates the prediction level of self-concealment and sensation seeking on the attitude toward violence in early adolescence. Relational survey method is applied in present study. Brief Sensation Seeking Scale, Self-concealment Scale, and Adolescents’ Attitude toward Violence Scale were delivered to 393 adolescents. Participants consist of students attending 6th, 7th and 8th grade in three different public schools between the ages of 12-15. 50% of the participants were female students. Pearson correlation coefficient and stepwise regression analysis were applied. This study result shows that attitude toward violence positively relates to sensation seeking and self-concealment. The stepwise regression analysis revealed that self-concealment and sensation seeking predict the attitude toward violence. This study revealed that sensation seeking is an important predictor of adolescent’s attitude toward violence. In the light of the findings obtained from the study, and the suggestions for teachers and psychological counselors about the orientation of the sensation seeking and the supporting environments were included.
