A relational research model was used in the study. 692 preservice teachers studying at a state university in the Aegean region participated in the study. The data tools were the personal information, Pre-Professional Teacher Identity, Fit-Choice Scale, and Social Support Scale. Data were analyzed using the Structural Equation Model (SEM). Results showed that there was a positive statistical relationship between the perception and social support. It was determined that teacher support was mostly related to social status, while friend support was statistically significantly and positively related to social status, satisfaction, and high demand. Family support was found to be statistically significantly and positively related only to the busy work sub-dimension. Satisfaction with choice was related to all teacher identity dimensions. Salary and expert career were significantly related to only participation as a teacher. The future studies and implications were discussed.</p> 2023-12-13T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Psycho-Educational Research Reviews An Investigation of the Professional Values of Elementary Teachers Based on Parents Views 2023-08-09T13:35:19+00:00 Nermin Karabacak <p>The basic key to achieving success in education is the teacher. When studies and the literature about effective teacher qualities are investigated, it appears that personality traits, academic educational history and experiences of teachers are important. Current research revealed that teachers provide qualified education with their professional values and this elevates the quality of education. Class teachers, especially, have a duty in socialization of the child. The professional values of teachers in the primary school period appear to have a significant effect on the academic success and future of students. In this research, the professional values of primary school teachers were investigated according to the opinions of parents of primary school students. This research used qualitative methods and techniques for data collection and analysis. The results of the research revealed the importance of being a researcher teacher in the context of class teaching as a profession requiring continuity in primary school, parents of students had very high levels of awareness about the professional values of class teachers and had high expectations from class teachers. These results show the need to invest in class teacher education to cultivate versatile class teachers who are equipped with professional values to be able to cope with changing problems in the 21st century and to achieve success in education.</p> 2023-12-13T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Psycho-Educational Research Reviews Prospective Music Teachers’ Attitudes, Self-Efficacy, and Study Habits Towards Piano Course in Terms of Different Variables 2023-11-27T11:09:47+00:00 Ceren Saygı-Gerçeker <p>The main objective of this study is to investigate the attitudes, self-efficacy, and study habits of prospective music teachers in terms of various variables. The sample of this study, designed as a relational survey model, consists of a total 349 prospective music teachers studying at 5 state universities in the Aegean Region. Three measurement tools were used to collect data in the study. Participants' attitudes towards the piano course differed significantly by their gender, grade, perception of success, daily practice time, and piano ownership status. Prospective music teachers’ self-efficacy towards piano courses differed significantly according to their gender, type of high school graduated, perception of success, daily practice time, and piano ownership status. Participants’ self-efficacy also significantly differed by gender, type of high school graduated, perception of success, daily practice time, and piano ownership status. Participants’ study habits significantly differed by type of high school graduated, perception of success, and daily practice time. Furthermore, there was a statistically significant relationship between students' attitude scores and their study habits scores, as well as a significant relationship between self-efficacy scores and study habits scores, and a moderately significant relationship between self-efficacy scores and attitude scores. Lastly, the correlation coefficient between the study's predictive variable (piano study habits) and the predicted variable (attitude) was found to be 0.574, indicating a moderate relationship. In a similar vein, the coefficient of correlation between the predictor variable (piano study habits) and the predicted variable (self-efficacy) was calculated as 0.773, implying a moderate relationship.</p> 2023-12-13T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Psycho-Educational Research Reviews Examination of Ninth Grade Students' Opinions on Global Warming and Climate Change by Photo Interview Technique 2023-12-10T20:06:16+00:00 Sevilay Oktay Serap Oktay Seçil Oktay Hilal Aktamış <p>The main problem underlying environmental problems is that people do not have sufficient environmental awareness and do not attach importance to such problems. In this context, the aim of this research is to determine the readiness of the 9th grade students towards global warming and climate change. In this research, 2020-2021 academic year, there are 9 students studying in the 9th grade of a public high school in one of the districts of Aydın in Türkiye. The study is a descriptive study and data diversity was made. The interviews with the students were made with the photo interview technique using a semi-structured interview form, and the findings were analyzed using descriptive analysis. The students stated that the reason for global climate change is mostly the use of fossil fuels and the unconscious behaviors of people, they stated that there will be drought in the future and the world is in great danger. The students stated that the use of the photo interview technique in the study made it easier for them to express themselves, they were better adapted to the subject, and they conveyed their ideas about the subject more accurately and better. It has been observed that 9th grade students have limited ideas about global warming and climate change, some students confuse these concepts and most of the students have misconceptions that global warming is caused by the depletion of the ozone layer. It was concluded that the students had an idea about the precautions to be taken on the subject, and interviewing with the photo interview technique made it easier for the students to express their views on the subject.</p> 2023-12-13T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Psycho-Educational Research Reviews Adaptation of Digital Addiction Scale for Children (DASC) into Turkish 2023-07-14T11:00:50+00:00 Eyüp Yılmaz Nihal Durmaz Mark D. Griffiths <p>Although, digital devices have numerous applications that children can benefit from, they may cause specific problems such as addiction. There are many empirical studies assessing digital addictions among Turkish adolescents and young adults. However, few empirical studies have been carried out among Turkish children probably due to the lack of an assessment tool. Therefore, the present study translated and validated the 25-item Digital Addiction Scale for Children (DASC) for Children into Turkish (DASTC). Data were collected from 694 Turkish schoolchildren aged 9-12 years (M=10.5 years; SD=0.92; 50.8% girls). The internal consistency of DASTC was calculated as α=0.92. The Videogame Addiction Scale for Children (VASC) was used to test for convergent validity and they were significantly correlated (r=0.75). Confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) showed that the established two-factor model had a near-perfect fit. In addition, digital addiction scores of boys and older aged children (11-12 years) were significantly higher than girls and younger aged children (9 years).</p> 2023-12-13T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Psycho-Educational Research Reviews Effects of an 8-Week Relational Cultural Intervention on Female University Students’ Attitudes Towards Dating Violence, Conflict Resolutions and Relationships 2023-05-26T08:24:48+00:00 Özlem Gündüz Seher A. Sevim <p>The aim of this research is to determine the effect of the Relational Cultural Theory Based Psycho-Education Program (RCTPP) on the attitudes of university students toward dating violence (DV), relationship qualities, and conflict resolution styles. The research is an experimental study conducted with female university students. There are nine students in the experimental group and nine students in the control group. The eight-session RCTPP developed by the researcher was applied to the experimental group. No intervention was made in the control group. As a result of the research, it was determined that the variance between the pre-test and post-test scores of the individuals in the experimental group and the control group regarding the attitude towards DV, the negative conflict resolution style (NCRS), and the compliance conflict resolution style (CCRS) differed significantly from each other. Accordingly, it was determined that the participants' attitude scores towards DV decreased, that is, they considered DV as less acceptable in relationships. In addition, it was found that the participants tended to use the NCRS and CCRS less. It was determined that the program did not affect the decrease of withdrawal conflict style scores (WCRS) in conflict resolution, and the increase in positive conflict resolution style scores (PCRS) and relationship quality scores.</p> 2023-12-13T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Psycho-Educational Research Reviews Discussing of the Implementation Process for Writing to Learn Activities 2023-11-09T09:24:03+00:00 Bünyamin İspir Ali Yıldız <p>The study aims to discuss of the implementation process for writing to learn activities. The document review method has been used in the research containing qualitative data. Data were obtained from scientific articles, books, and presentations containing information about the general characteristics of process-oriented writing and writing to learn and analyzed using the descriptive analysis method. As a result of the reviews synthesised the findings, guidelines, and applications of the studies based on researchers' observations, experiences, intuitions, and inferences and presented them under five different headings. In this context, the implementation process of writing to learn has been discussed in five stages: preparation, exploration, application, evaluation, and sharing. In line with the stated results, it can be suggested that researchers who will use the WTL method in the future should make applications by considering the relevant steps. Thus, the direct or indirect effects of writing for learning activities on students can be increased.</p> 2023-12-13T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Psycho-Educational Research Reviews A Meta-Analysis of the Correlation Between Posttraumatic Growth and Social Support in Türkiye Sample 2023-08-04T09:45:31+00:00 Sema Yazıcı Kabadayı <p>There are inconsistent findings in studies examining the relationship between posttraumatic growth and social support. This meta-analysis aims to evaluate the relationship between posttraumatic growth and social support. For this purpose, a systematic search was conducted in four databases including the Web of Science (WoS), TR Index, ULAKBIM, and National Thesis Center. Studies with correlational findings on the relationship between posttraumatic growth and social support were included in the study. A total of 45 studies with a total sample size of 7704 people were included in the meta-analysis. According to the random effects model, the effect size of 45 studies was r = .37. According to the meta-analysis findings, a moderate positive relationship was found between posttraumatic growth and social support. Research findings showed that individuals with high levels of posttraumatic growth also had high levels of social support. Considering the results of this meta-analysis, attention should be paid to social support in terms of protective mental health in mental health studies.</p> 2023-12-13T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Psycho-Educational Research Reviews
