Özet

The purpose of this study is to examine the correlation between the peer attachment styles and hopelessness levels in adolescents. The research was a descriptive study based on correlational survey model. The population of the study consisted of a total of 213 students studying in the 6th, 7th, and 8th grades of Erzincan Otlukbeli Fatih Secondary School, and the 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grades of Otlukbeli Multi-program Anatolian High School. The data were collected by using the "Beck Hopelessness Scale" (BHS) developed by Beck, Lester and Trexler (1974) to determine the hopelessness levels of the students, and the "Adolescent Friendship Scale" (AFS) developed by Wilkinson (2008) and adapted into Turkish by Ercan (2015) in order to determine the peer attachment styles of adolescents.
