Abstract

© 2022. Milli Egitim. All Rights Reserved.In this study, it is aimed to examine the relationships between fear of happiness and psychological resilience and future expectations of adolescents studying at vocational high schools and to examine the predictive effect of adolescents’ psychological resilience and future expectation on fear of happiness. For this purpose, 306 students studying in secondary education institutions participated in the study. The research was designed in relational scanning model in accordance with quantitative methods. According to the purpose of the study, the data were obtained from “Fear of Happiness Scale”, “Child and Adolescent Psychological Resilience Scale” and “Adolescent Future Expectations Scale”. According to the findings of the study, adolescents’ fear of happiness did not change according to the variables of gender and educational status of the parents. However, it was concluded that it changed depending on the socioeconomic situation and the trauma experienced in childhood. Accordingly, it is observed that the level of fear of happiness increases in the case of a decrease in the socioeconomic level of adolescents and a trauma in childhood. According to another finding of the study, there is a significant negative relationship between adolescents’ future expectations and their fear of happiness. In this context, future expectation is a meaningful predictor of the fear of happiness. However, according to the research findings, it was observed that there was no significant relationship between fear of happiness and psychological resilience, and psychological resilience was not a significant predictor of fear of happiness.
