Self-determination theory (SDT) is an empirically based theory of motivation and psychological development that is especially focused on the basic psychological needs that promote high quality motivation and wellness, and how they are supported in social contexts. SDT details how the styles and strategies of motivators such as parents, teachers, coaches, managers, and health-care professionals can promote or undermine engagement and the positive consequences that follow from it.

TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO SELF-DETERMINATION THEORY: AN APPROACH TO MOTIVATION, DEVELOPMENT AND WELLNESS
I thoroughly enjoyed studying this course. I feel it has really benefitted me and enhanced my understanding of the world and life. Thankyou.
Learned more about how we can work on extrinsic motivation by working more on autonomy competence and relatedness, thank you so much for providing this opportunity
Amazing course which covers psychological needs satisfaction over a wide range of cultures, socioeconomic statuses, professions, activities, skills and work settings.
My very first online course and I never expected that this would be of high quality teaching. The professor knows very well what he is talking about and can clearly convey the idea of SDT. Splendid!
