  • Leisure and youth in the southeast region in Brazil

    • Authors: Liana ROMERA; Derick TİNOCO, Ana PİNTOS, Olívia RİBEİRO, Ester OLİVEİRA, Edmur STOPPA, Hélder ISAYAMA
      Abstract: The aim of this study was to identify the interests of young people in their occupation of free time that configures the experiences they have lived and to analyze what they would like to live in terms of leisure, but that, due to some impending factor, do not do so. The research is linked to a larger study: “Leisure in Brazil” that analyzed the ways of living leisure in the national territory. The article dealt specifically with youth leisure in the southeast region and the information was collected through structured interviews. Despite the existing differences due to the socioeconomic situation, gender, and education of young people, we identified the relevance attributed to leisure in the company of friends, confirming the socializing and unifying role of groups through leisure. The analysis pointed out the economic and educational inequality, reflected in the access to leisure activities and justifies the need to abandon a homogenizing view of youth.

  • Relationship with physical activity habits, quality of life and sleep
           quality in different exercise types

    • Authors: Aykut TAŞKIN; İpek EROĞLU KOLAYİŞ
      Abstract: In this study, the relationship between physical activity habits, quality of life and sleep quality of individuals who exercise regularly and those who do not, were examined by considering exercise types. In the study, 300 participants (X ̅age: 33.92±9.59) from individuals who regularly do sports (Fitness, Tennis, Swimming) by random sampling method and 200 participants who do not regularly do sports (X ̅age: 32.72±8.45) individuals by simple random selection method from defined units participated voluntarily. In this study, in addition to the personal information form created by the researcher, three data collection tools were used: Baecke Physical Activity Habit Questionnaire (BFAA), Quality of Life Scale (SF 36), and Pitsburg Sleep Quality Index (PUKI). In the analysis of the data obtained by the face-to-face survey technique, t test in independent groups, one-way analysis of variance test and Pearson product of moments were used to observe the relationship between the variables. When the physical activity habit scores of the participants were examined according to their regular exercise status; Statistically significant differences were found in favor of the exercising group in all sub-dimensions of the SF-36 scale, except for the work index sub-dimension in BFAA. When examined in terms of different sports branches, there was no difference between the groups according to PUKI, while it was observed that BFAA and SF-36 were statistically lower in those who did not exercise compared to all other variables. In addition, the sports index sub-dimension of those who do fitness is higher in physical function, general health perception, social function and mental health sub-dimensions of those who do tennis. While sleep quality was associated with all sub-dimensions of quality of life, no statistically significant relationship was found in terms of physical activity habits. As a result, it has been observed that the quality of life increases as physical activity habits increase, and sleep quality increases as the quality of life increases, and it is thought that sleep quality is indirectly affected in terms of regular exercise.

  • Focus groups: A practical guide for sport education research

    • Authors: Ali SEVİLMİŞ; Ozer YILDIZ
      Abstract: The aim of this article, in the context of sports education research, is to present a practical approach for focus group interviews, one of the data collection techniques used in qualitative research. In the research, document analysis method was used. An extensive research was carried out to provide a broader understanding about the background and theoretical basis of the focus group interview, in the context of sports education. A frame was formed for focus group interviews in sports education research. Primarily, answers were sought about how focus group interviews were used in sports education research. Secondly, the titles that show the correct and consistent ways to solve the problems encountered in focus group interviews were presented. The open concerns for the focus group interview (writing, reporting, coding of the questions) were also dealt. The research will provide a deeper understanding about the nature of the focus group interview for academicians who will do research in the context of sports education.

  • Predictions for activity involvement via PERMA well-being model in
           mountain climbing-hiking participants on Mt.Olympus

    • Authors: Dimitrios KAİMAKAMİS
      Abstract: The present study aims to investigate predictions for activity involvement per PERMA well-being model in outdoor activities such as mountain climbing-hiking on Mt.Olympus. Specifically, in the last 30 years, thousands of nature lovers/naturalists have been visiting this legendary mountain to admire up close its unfathomable natural beauty, wander in its trails and plateaus, and conquer its summits. For this research, we gathered date from participants in mountain climbing-hiking on Mt.Olympus. The total sample was 200 participants (N=200). For the measurement of well-being, we used the questionnaire by Kern et al. (2015), which encompasses five elements: positive emotions, engagement, relationships, meaning, and accomplishment. To measure the involvement, we used the scale by Kyle and Chick (2002) and investigated three parameters namely attraction (3 questions), centrality (3 questions) and self-expression (3 questions). It seems that mountain climbing continues to be an activity enjoyed mainly by ages over 30 years. Substantial average scores were noted for Attraction (mean =5,7), which refers to the pleasure the individual feels when participating in an outdoor leisure activity, and for Self-expression (mean=4,8), referring to the potential for validation of the individual through their participation in an activity. The PERMA model was a significant contributory factor for predictions in all three involvement parameters.

  • Investigation of career goal discrepancy of Individuals who are preparing
           for PVTC exams and their reasons for preference

    • Authors: Fikret KAYHALAK; Tebessüm AYYILDIZ DURHAN, Serkan KURTİPEK
      Abstract: In this research, it is aimed to examine the career goal discrepancies of individuals preparing for the physical course and oral interviews organized by the Police Vocational Training Center and the reasons for their orientation to the police profession through a mixed research approach. The research was carried out with a total of 212 candidates, 137 (64.6%) female and 75 (35.4%) male, who were preparing for the Police Vocational Training Center Examinations (PVTC) in the 27th Term of 2020–2021, in 29 different cities in Turkey. The data in the quantitative part of this study were obtained with the "Personal Information Form" prepared by the researchers and the " Career Goal Discrepancies Scale" consisting of 12 items developed by Creed and Hood (2015) and adapted into Turkish by Yam, Alkın, and Bartur (2020). Qualitative data were obtained with a "semi-structured interview form" prepared by the researchers. As a result of the research, it can be said that certain variables differentiate the career goal discrepancies, and that the participants prefer PVTC interviews instead of the career steps of the department of education, and the reason for this is the difficulty of being appointed in their own department and the desire to work in government positions.
