The main objective of the current study is to examine the relationships between self-handicapping, and irrational beliefs about approval, irrational beliefs about interpersonal relationships, irrational beliefs about self and the overall level of irrational beliefs by reference to the " ABC " framework. Participants of the study were 263 teacher candidates. Self-Handicapping Scale and Irrational Beliefs Scale-Short Form was utilized in order to measure the constructs. Spearman's Rho correlations and Mann-Whitney U analyses were conducted. Irrational beliefs about approval and general irrational beliefs levels significantly related with levels of self-handicapping (r = 0.33 and r = 0.18 respectively, p < 0.05). The results verified that self-handicapping scores related positively to the scores of irrational beliefs about approval. A gender difference with respect to levels of irrational beliefs about approval was also verified. The results were discussed within the scope of the related literature.
