ABSTRACT

This research was conducted to examine the psychological resilience and violence tendency levels of adolescents who are dealing with team and individual sports. In total, 225 volunteer athletes (104 females and 121 males), who were in the 14-18 age group, participated in this study. The data were collected through the violence tendency scale and the psychological resilience scale form. According to the results of the research, it was observed that there were similarities in the psychological resilience and violence tendency levels of male and female athletes concerning the gender and the sports experience variables. It was concluded that the violence tendency levels of the adolescents dealing with team sports were higher compared to the ones dealing with individual sports; the violence tendency levels of the athletes playing in clubs were lower compared to the athletes without a license and playing in school teams, and the psychological resilience levels of the first group were higher than the second group. Additionally, it was concluded that there was a negative, linear, and low-level significant relationship between the violence tendency levels and psychological resilience levels of the athletes in the research group.
