Abstract

In this study, it was aimed to determine the effects of psychological capital and negative feelings of students on their violence tendency. A sample of 745 high school students agreed to participate in this study. For each scale, the exploratory factor analysis and the confirmatory factor analysis were performed. Then, the sum of each scale was taken and the data were analysed using the structural equation approach. The results of this study show that students’ psychological capital reduces their violence tendency through their reduced negative feelings such as anxiety, stress and burnout. It would be beneficial for school managers and teachers to invest in strengthening psychological capital levels of their students if they want to reduce their violence tendency.
