James Adie, Kimberley J. Bartholomew

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

Based on a positive psychology approach (Seligman & Cskiszentmihayli, 2000), this chapter will focus on the motivational determinants of health-related outcomes in competitive sport settings. More specifically, the review of contemporary literature is guided by two motivational theories that have implications for the well- and ill-being of participants in competitive sport settings, namely self-determination theory (SDT; Deci & Ryan, 2000) and achievement goal theory (AGT; Nicholls, 1984; Elliot, 2005). In essence, the empirical work stemming from both of these theories is discussed in terms of its theoretical and practical utility.
