Book Description :

Self-determination theory (SDT) provides a framework for understanding the factors that promote motivation and healthy psychological and behavioral functioning. In this authoritative work, the codevelopers of the theory comprehensively examine SDT's conceptual underpinnings (including its six mini-theories), empirical evidence base, and practical applications across the lifespan. The volume synthesizes a vast body of research on how supporting--or thwarting--people's basic needs for competence, relatedness, and autonomy affects their development and well-being. Chapters cover implications for practice and policy in education, health care, psychotherapy, sport, and the workplace.

Book Description :

Early in this century, most empirically oriented psychologists believed that all motivation was based in the physiology of a set of non-nervous system tissue needs. The theories of that era reflected this belief and used it in an attempt to explain an increasing number of phenomena. It was not until the 1950s that it became irrefutably clear that much of human motivation is based not in these drives, but rather in a set of innate psychological needs. Their physiological basis is less understood; and as concepts, these needs lend themselves more easily to psycho logical than to physiological theorizing. The convergence of evidence from a variety of scholarly efforts suggests that there are three such needs: self-determination, competence, and interpersonal relatedness. This book is primarily about self-determination and competence (with particular emphasis on the former), and about the processes and structures that relate to these needs. The need for interpersonal relat edness, while no less important, remains to be explored, and the findings from those explorations will need to be integrated with the present theory to develop a broad, organismic theory of human motivation. Thus far, we have articulated self-determination theory, which is offered as a working theory-a theory in the making. To stimulate the research that will allow it to evolve further, we have stated self-determination theory in the form of minitheories that relate to more circumscribed domains, and we have developed paradigms for testing predictions from the various minitheories.

Book Description :

This text provides a comprehensive overview of three theoretical perspectives proposed during the past decade addressing the self-determination construct as it applies to the field of special education. The three models were selected primarily because they have focused on defining and categorizing self-determination for all students with disabilities, including students with mental retardation and other cognitive disabilities. These models are intended to provide students and practitioners a solid grounding in self-determination theory. All models have been evaluated among students with cognitive disabilities but are applicable to all students with or without disabilities. The authors research each model and have applied their own theoretical framework to special education, ensuring that interventions to promote skills like problem solving, goal setting, decision making, and self-advocacy are in place for all students. By reading this text, the reader will gain a solid, theoretically based foundation in understanding the self-determination construct which ultimately supports the development of instructional interventions that enable students with disabilities to become self-determined. It will be useful as a text in upper undergraduate and graduate courses in special education, psychology, social work/welfare, general education, vocational rehabilitation and disability studies.

Book Description :

Self-determination theory is grounded in the belief that people work best and are happiest when they feel that they are in control of their own lives. This invaluable book explains the ramifications of the theory and provides clinical examples to show that it can be used to motivate patients undergoing treatment for such physical or psychological issues as diabetes management, smoking cessation, post-traumatic stress, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and depression. The first part of the book provides historical background to self-determination theory, showing that it is humanistically oriented and has three decades of empirical research behind it. In the process, the authors discuss why humanistic psychology fell out of favor in academic psychology; why “self-help” and New Age books have such perennial popularity; and why it is so important for authorities to support patients’ sense of self. The remainder of the book presents many specific case examples to describe the theory’s application.

Book Description :

Self-Determination Theory (SDT) is one of the most widely studied perspectives of human motivation. It has garnered the attention of prominent scholars and applied practitioners around the globe from a variety of disciplines such as business, healthcare, education, and sports. This book provides new research in the study of SDT. Chapter One provides a self-determination theory perspective on gender differences in pro-environmental behaviors. Chapter Two reviews a small body of literature regarding the study of college student athletes from a SDT perspective. Chapter Three explores relations between teaching qualifications and feelings of autonomy, competence, and relatedness towards medical teaching. Chapter Four uses the motivational typology in self-determination theory to explore the egoistic side of public service motivation. Chapter Five provides a historical overview of incentives and Operant Theory; explains how SDT developed in part as a reaction to the Operant paradigm of the mid-20th century; identifies nine faulty assumptions that led SDT astray; and introduces a relatively new construct, incentive salience, as a way to reconcile the observed compatibility between incentives and SDT. Chapter Six elucidates ethnic differences on depressive symptoms by examining the satisfaction of all three basic psychological needs as the underlying mechanism/mediator between ethnicity and depressive symptoms. Chapter Seven reviews the impact of significant people on students' motivation to learn English in Vietnamese higher education.

Book Description :

Self-determination theory is a theory of human motivation that is being increasingly used by organizations to make strategic HR decisions and train managers. It argues for a focus on the quality of workers' motivation over quantity. Motivation that is based on meaning and interest is showed to be superior to motivation that is based on pressure and rewards. Work environments that make workers feel competent, autonomous, and related to others foster the right type of motivation, goals, and work values. The Oxford Handbook of Work Motivation, Engagement, and Self-Determination Theory aims to give current and future organizational researchers ideas for future research using self-determination theory as a framework, and to give practitioners ideas on how to adjust their programs and practices using self-determination theory principles. The book brings together self-determination theory experts and organizational psychology experts to talk about past and future applications of the theory to the field of organizational psychology. The book covers a wide range of topics, including: how to bring about commitment, engagement, and passion in the workplace; how to manage stress, health, emotions and violence at work; how to encourage safe and sustainable behavior in organizations; how factors like attachment styles, self-esteem, person-environment fit, job design, leadership, compensation, and training affect work motivation; and how work-related values and goals are forged by the work environment and affect work outcomes.

Book Description :

This book pioneers evidence-based research on healthy aging through the application of self determination theory (SDT). Its uniqueness is located in the fact that to date, no other work has applied SDT to the empirical study of aging populations. The authors focus on how SDT drives healthy, successful and active aging, and note that the motivation factors underpinning healthy aging are often neglected, or altogether absent, in the existing literature. This edited volume is particularly timely given the expanding aging crisis in many North American, European and Asian contexts. The collection of chapters meets this challenge head-on in comparing these contexts vis-a-vis a broad international scope, and subsequent discussions on important specialty issues in aging, such as hearing and memory loss. The work offers global perspectives on aging, autonomy and associated life challenges, as well as factors relating to the sustainability of healthy aging in terms of physical and mental well-being. This book will be highly relevant to researchers in the SDT community, as well as specialists in aging and gerontology. It will also be of interest to lifespan psychologists and developmental psychologists.

Book Description :

Nowadays, organizational competitiveness depends on its effectiveness, versatility and the ability to respond to customer needs. Thus, companies look for flexibility in human resources as a means of attaining an economic advantage. In fact, the increasing recourse to contingent work may be regarded as more than an economic matter; it can be considered a reflex of an actual social change. Moreover, contingent workers are no longer confined to peripheral activities. Today, it is common to find temporary and permanent employees working alongside each other in technical jobs. However, what is it that drives these workers and how do their motivations fall in with the success of such new work arrangements? By following the principles of the Self Determination Theory (SDT), the authors' will show that human motivations, in all kinds of workers, are the result of a complex interplay between individuals' autonomy and its internal and external regulation, proving that elevated forms of motivation (i.e., intrinsic motivation and identified regulation), provided by autonomous environments, lead to more adaptive, cognitive and affective outcomes. Additionally, this book will show how it may be possible to transform suboptimal forms of motivation into more self-determined ones. We will show that minor, repeated events can lead to gradual and internalized behaviors, which allow people to experience more adaptive outcomes and attain higher motivation towards their job. In other words, positive work experiences will be shown as being capable of captivating and engaging individuals, leading them to consider their choices as more voluntary and autonomous. How contingent workers' motivation can change over time may actually be crucial to better comprehend and improve their employment relationship.

This monograph investigates the construct of autonomy in eastern settings by reviewing the evidence from debates that originate from both the cultures. Through empirical findings, it helps to look beyond the theories and principles of cross cultural differences. It describes autonomy by focusing on human needs that are innate, universal and essential to all humans, irrespective of their cultural or other differences. We hope that the information provided in this monograph will be insightful for the readers who are interested in the concept of autonomy use in classrooms for better results.

Book Description :

Abstract: Motivation is a dynamic concept which fluctuates within the operator over time—it is not a binary state of either present or absent. Additionally, Self-Determination Theory purports that there is a fundamental difference between the two main categories of motivation: intrinsic and extrinsic. Intrinsic motivation drives behavior because the person perceives it as inherently satisfying, whereas extrinsic motivation drives behavior through only secondary rewards. However, factors such as the perceived satisfaction of basic psychological needs and cognitive and affective states (such as stress and workload) significantly affect motivation. Consequently, it is important to design a system that takes these factors into consideration in order to promote optimal performance of human-machine systems. Despite our understanding of motivation’s effects on human performance, many systems’ design erroneously assumes motivation is not only present in the operator whilst engaging with a task, but that the operator remains motivated throughout the course of performance. These assumptions are not only incorrect, but also fail to exploit aspects of motivation that could lead to better human performance within human-machine systems. The present study therefore examines how intrinsic motivation and operators’ cognitive and affective states (stress and workload) influence performance outcomes in terms of completion rates, speed, and accuracy in a goal-directed discretionary technological system (video games). Results pertaining to performance outcomes, measurements of the perceived satisfaction of basic psychological needs, and changes in cognitive and affective states are interpreted via the Self-Determination Theory of motivation.

Book Description :

This volume examines the developmental aspects of the general psychological construct of self-determination. The term refers to self- (vs. other-) caused action—to people acting volitionally—as based on their own will. Research conducted in the fields of psychology and education shows the importance of self-determination to adolescent development and positive adult outcomes. The first part of this volume presents an overview of theories and historical antecedents of the construct. It looks at the role of self-determination in major theories of human agentic behavior and of adolescent development and individuation. The second part of the volume examines the developmental origins and the trajectory of self-determination in childhood, adolescence, and adulthood, and looks as aging aspects. The next part presents studies on the evolutionary aspects, individual differences and healthy psychological development. The last part of the book covers the development of causal and agentic capability.

Book Description :

Self-determination theory encompasses three different elements, competence, autonomy and social belongingness (Deci & Ryan, 2000). Helicopter parenting is defined as extreme involvement in a child's life to the point of making decisions for them while also being associated with high levels of parental support and high feelings of parental-child closeness (Padilla-Walker & Nelson, 2012). Research has shown that helicopter parenting has been associated with psychological and behavioral problems in young adults, (Odenweller, Booth-Butterfield, & Weber, 2014). The current study investigated the association between perceived helicopter parenting and self-determination theory components along with intrinsic motivation and academic and extracurricular engagement in college students. Helicopter parenting and self-determination variables were found to be inversely related, such that high perceived helicopter parenting correlated with low scores for self-determination variables. This study provides key insight into perceived helicopter parenting and the possible maladaptive associations for emerging adults and the responsibilities that come with adulthood.

Book Description :

According to the Self-Determination Theory (SDT), intrinsic motivation and identified regulation are positively related to exercise participation, while introjected regulation, external regulation, and amotivation are negatively related to exercise participation. Also, according to Cognitive Evaluation Theory, a subtheory of the SDT, the satisfaction of the basic needs (autonomy, competence, and relatedness) is positively related to intrinsic motivation and identified regulation. These theoretical relationships have been confirmed by many researchers when exercise participation is measured via self-report questionnaires, however, few studies have tested these relationships with objectively-assessed exercise participation. Therefore, the aim of this study was to clarify the relationships between five motivational regulations (i.e., intrinsic motivation, introjected regulations, external regulation, and amotivation) and exercise participation within a worksite wellness exercise program. Additionally, the relationship between the three basic needs (i.e., autonomy, competence, and relatedness) and exercise participation will be investigated to determine the mediating effects of intrinsic motivation and identified regulation. Participants (n=162; M = 12, F = 150) were members of a worksite wellness program offered by a school district in central Texas. The worksite wellness program consisted of weekly group exercise classes, monthly nutrition lectures, and comprehensive fitness testing at the beginning and end of a 4 month period. Prior to beginning the program, each participant completed a multi-section questionnaire examining all aforementioned variables. Participation was assessed using attendance records. Multiple regression analyses revealed that external regulation and autonomy were significant predictors of exercise participation. Further analysis, however, revealed that intrinsic motivation and identified regulation did not mediate the relationship between autonomy and exercise participation. Based on the results, it appears that individuals who are externally motivated or feel autonomous within an exercise program are likely to participate more often. These findings show partial support for Self-Determination Theory and Cognitive Evaluation Theory.
