Item Usage Stats
The aim of the current study was to analyze studies related to conduct problems among adolescents from 2000 to 2014 and synthesize findings. The study examines rates of involvement and exposure, different types of bullying, rates of cyber-bullying and associative factors of conduct problems along with the recommended non-curricular and curricular solutions by studies. Another aim of the current study was to illustrate a descriptive model which provides connection between what is done individually by researchers and gives general broad view about these findings. Articles for a meta-analysis were identified by using key word searches. Descriptive, correlational, intervention studies related to middle and high school in Turkey were collected. Master’s thesis, PhD dissertations, and minor journals that are not indexed by the Bilkent databases were not included. Studies related to risk taking behaviors and psychological problems were not included in the sample. The meta-analysis method was used to analyze the data. It can be speculated that adolescents face various conduct problems in Turkish schools and various associative factors related to conduct problems mediate the effect of these problems.
