The aim of the research is to examine the attitudes of Sports Sciences Faculty students studying at Pamukkale University towards disabled individuals. The model of the research is general survey model from the descriptive survey model. The sample of the research consists of 255 students studying at Pamukkale University Faculty of Sport Sciences and participated in the research on a voluntary basis. As data collection tool Multidimensional Attitudes Scale Toward Persons with Disabilities, which is developed by Findler, Vilchinsky and Werner (2007) and adapted to Turkish by Yelpaze and Türküm (2018), is used. The scale is 31 items, 5-point Likert type scale consists of three dimensions (Affect, Cognition, Behaviour). No significant difference was found between the scores obtained from the scale and the variables of gender, having a disabled person in the family, having a disabled person in the classroom, taking physical education and sports course for the disabled, and the department they were educated in. A significant difference was found in the variable of the academic year at the university, and it was determined that the 2nd grade students showed more positive attitudes towards the disabled in the total score. As a result of the research, it has been reached that the attitudes of university students towards the disabled are positive and the fact that the individuals have a disability does not change their attitudes to a large extent.

The self-talk scale (CCLS) was developed by Theodorakis et al. (2008). The aim of this study was examineed the validity and reliability of the Turkish version of the Self-talk Scale in Sports. The scale was applied to a total of 445 students doing sports actively, 202 females (20,47 ± 1.57) and 243 males (18,38 ± 2,89), with a mean age of 20,69 ± 1,61 years. In the analysis of the data, exploratory (EFA) and confirmatory factor analyzes (CFA) were used for construct validity and the Cronbach Alpha reliability coefficient was used to determine reliability. Construct validity findings were consistent with the five-factor structure of the original scale (χ2/df (237,11/311) = 2,81, RMSEA = 0,04, GFI = 0,95, CFI = 0,93, NFI = 0,96, IFI = 0,91, AGFI = 0,89). It was determined that the Cronbach alpha reliability coefficients of the scale ranged between 0.74 and 0.95, and the test-retest reliability coefficients ranged between 0,72 and 0,83. According to the results of the study, it has been shown that the Self-talk Scale in Sports has sufficient validity and reliability values on Turkish athletes.
