This study aimed to validate the Norwegian version of the Basic Psychological Need Satisfaction and Frustration Scale (BPNSFS) and to examine its relations with indicators of well-being and ill-being. Additionally, despite the vast number of studies employing the BPNSFS, norms related to the BPNSFS are currently lacking. Therefore, we also aimed to...
Conference Paper
Intrinsic motivation is often regarded as the ideal when developing computer-mediated technology for health and rehabilitation activities in HCI-research. Even though intrinsic motivation is indeed a sustainable and self-rewarding form of motivation, arguably both extrinsic and intrinsic types of motivation are influential factors to an individual'...

Across the world, measures were taken to contain the spreading of the COVID-19 virus. Many of these measures caused a sudden rupture in people’s daily routines, thereby eliciting considerable uncertainty and potentially also hampering the satisfaction of individuals’ psychological needs for autonomy, relatedness, and competence. Drawing upon Maslow...

Article
Full-text available
Research on self-determination theory has typically relied on explicit measures when examining the concept of competence need satisfaction. As a result, we know relatively little about competence need satisfaction that arises under conditions of automaticity. Across four studies, we developed and validated implicit measures of competence need satis...
Article
Full-text available
Objective. Autonomy-supportive and psychologically controlling parenting have been shown to relate to positive and negative developmental outcomes, respectively. Most research that addresses antecedents of these parenting constructs has focused on the predictive role of between-parent differences (e.g., personality). To gain insight in dynamics of...
Article
Full-text available
Objective: From a Self-Determination Theory perspective, individuals are assumed to benefit and suffer from, respectively, the satisfaction and frustration of the psychological need for autonomy, even if they score low on autonomy strength.

Project
By bringing together theories from multiple disciplines (including developmental psychology, social psychology, sociology, economics, and gender studies), this ERC-funded project seeks to understand how the societal, cultural, and economic context may shape the way parents raise their children. More information is presented on the project website www.safesorry.be.

Parents and children regularly talk about past emotional events. The degree to which parents make use of an elaborative reminiscing style, which involves parents providing support for their child’s perspective and providing sufficient structure during the conversations, appears to be crucial for children’s cognitive and socioemotional development. However, no study thus far examined whether such style also contributes to the child’s emotion regulation skills. Therefore, in the present project, I aim to examine the consequences of an elaborative parental reminiscing style for children’s emotion regulation. Additionally, less is known about what enables parents to adopt an elaborative reminiscing style. In this respect, I will investigate mindful parenting (i.e., parents’ ability to attend to and to be non-judgmental when interacting with their child) and children’s externalizing problems (e.g., aggression) as possible antecedents of this elaborative parental reminiscing style and whether parents’ psychological availability intervenes in these relations.
