In this study, involving 585 youth sport coaches (Mage = 35.76), we investigated whether coaches who perceive their environment to be highly evaluative would report acting in a more controlling or pressuring way. In a subsample (N = 211, Mage = 38.14), we examined the explanatory role of coaches’ experiences of psychological need frustration in this relation. We also considered whether years of coaching experience would serve as a buffer against the adverse effects of an evaluative context. In l...

This study aims to identify teachers’ motivational profiles, using the three forms of motivation. M...

Abstract Although plenty of studies have shown that a controlling, relative to an autonomy-supportive, motivating style yields a host of undesirable outcomes, at least some sport coaches endorse the belief that in some situations (e.g., when athletes misbehave) or with some athletes (e.g., those who are amotivated) a controlling approach is warranted and even beneficial. On the basis of Self-Determination Theory (Deci & Ryan, 1985; Ryan & Deci, 2017), the current study examined to what extent th...
