Ozet
Bu araştırmanın amacı üniversite öğrencilerinde öz-kontrolün depresyon düzeyleri ile bilinçli farkındalık arasındaki ilişkide aracılık rolünü ortaya koymaktır. Araştırmanın çalışma grubunu 2015-2016 öğretim yılında Anadolu Üniversitesinin çeşitli fakültelerinin örgün programların toplam 808 üniversite öğrencisi oluşturmuştur. Araştırmanın verileri “Beck Depresyon ölçeği”, ‘‘Bilinçli Farkındalık Ölçeği”, “İlişki Ölçekleri Anketi” toplanmıştır.
Aracılık testi bulgularına göre; bilinçli farkındalık ile depresyon arasındaki ilişkide öz-kontrolün aracılık etkisinin istatistiki açıdan önemli olduğu bulunmuştur. Buna göre bilinçli farkındalık öz-kontrol aracılığıyla depresyonu negatif yönde yordamaktadır. Bilinçli farkındalığı yüksek üniversite öğrencilerinin öz-kontrol düzeyleri de yüksek olmakta ve bunun sonucu olarak depresyon düzeyleri daha düşük olmaktadır.

Anahtar Kelimeler: Depresyon, Bilinçli farkındalık, Öz-kontrol,
