Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology, v32 n5 p618-35 Sep 2001
Examined whether autonomy-support would have a positive effect on self-motivation and well-being. U.S. and Russian high school students completed measures of perceived parental and teacher autonomy-support, academic motivation, and well-being. Russian students perceived parents and teachers as more controlling than did U.S. students. In both samples, perceived autonomy-support predicted greater academic self-motivation and well-being. (SM)
