An overview of the self-determination theory in psychology

While there are many different approaches to human motivation, there is an interesting theory developed by two researchers, Deci and Ryan, that aim to explain our well-being through meeting our basic needs, which are the need in autonomy, the need in competence, and the need in relatedness.

In this talk, I explain the core concepts of Self-determination theory and how can one apply them to the real life.
