Abstract

The present study aimed to investigate the relationship between childhood traumas experienced by adolescents and their future expectations. The sample comprised 408 high school students, with 212 girls and 196 boys. The researchers employed the Childhood Trauma Questionnaire Short Form (CTQ-SF) to assess participants' childhood trauma, the Future Expectations Scale for Adolescents (FESA) to measure their future expectations, and a researcher-developed Personal Information Form to collect demographic data. The study findings revealed a significant negative correlation between adolescents' childhood trauma experiences and their future expectations. Regression results show that physical neglect and emotional abuse account for 18% of the variance in future expectations. Considering the results, recommendations were made to researchers and practitioners.
