Mizahla Başa Çıkma ve İyilik Hali: Psikolojik Sağlamlık ve İyimserliğin Aracılık Rolünün İncelenmesi

Öz:
Bu çalışmada psikolojik sağlamlık ile iyimserliğin mizahla başa çıkma ve iyilik hali ilişkisinde aracılık rolünün olup olmadığı incelenmiştir. Çalışma 351 (201 kadın, 150 erkek; Yaşort = 20.26±1.75) üniversite öğrencisinin katılımıyla gerçekleştirilmiştir. Katılımcılar Mizah Yoluyla Başa Çıkma Ölçeği, Psikolojik İyi Oluş Ölçeği, Kısa Psikolojik Sağlamlık Ölçeği ve Yaşam Yönelimi Testi-R'ni doldurmuşlardır. Veriler Yapısal Eşitlik Modellemesi ve Bootstrapping İşlemiyle analiz edilmiştir. Yapısal model sonucunda; mizahla başa çıkmanın iyilik halini doğrudan değil, psikolojik sağlamlık ile iyimserliğin tam aracılığıyla yordadığı saptanmıştır. Bootstrapping işlemi de psikolojik sağlamlık ile iyimserliğin mizahla başa çıkma ve iyilik hali ilişkisinde tam aracı olduğu dolaylı yolun anlamlı olduğunu desteklemiştir. Olası açıklamalar ile çalışmanın doğurguları ve sınırlıkları tartışılmıştır

Humor Coping and Flourishing: Investigating the Mediating Role of Resilience and Optimism

Öz:
The purpose of this study was to examine whether resilience and optimism are mediator between humor coping and flourishing among Turkish university students. Totally 351 (201 females and 150 males, mean age = 20.26±1.75) students completed a self-report questionnaire including the Humor Coping Scale, the Flourishing Scale, the Brief Resilience Scale, and the Life Orientation Test-R Scale. The data were analyzed with structural equation modeling and bootstrapping method. Structural modeling showed that humor coping had not a direct effect on flourishing, fully mediated by resilience and optimism. The results of the bootstrap estimation procedure indicated that the indirect effect of resilience and optimism on the relationship between humor coping and flourishing was significant. The possible explanations and the research implications and limitations are discussed
