This study focused on the analysis of secondary school students' levels of ruminative thinking and interpersonal relationship dimensions. The sampling consisted of 550 secondary school students. In order to determine the ruminative thinking levels of secondary school students the "Ruminative Thinking Pattern Scale" developed by Brinker and Dozois (2009) and adapted by Karatepe (2010). Also the Scale of Interpersonal Relationship Dimensions was developed by Imamoglu and Aydin (2009) in order to evaluate and determine the interpersonal relationships. The findings of this study would contribute to the determination of the connection between students' interpersonal relationships and their ruminative thinking skills.
