Projeto de Investigação apresentado para a obtenção do grau de Mestre em Psicologia do Desporto e do Exercício ORIENTADORA: Professora Doutora Carla Chicau Borrego; RESUMO Atualmente, a probabilidade dos adolescentes se envolverem em comportamentos de risco é cada vez maior, o que leva à necessidade de intervir no sentido de os ajudar a serem bem-sucedidos durante a adolescência, juventude e enquanto adultos (Danish, 1997). O contexto desportivo é propício para uma educação informal, que pode contribuir para o desenvolvimento positivo, quer do jovem quer da comunidade (Santos & Gonçalves, 2012). Neste sentido, surgem os programas desportivos de intervenção psicológica com o intuito de desenvolver e melhorar as competências das crianças e jovens. Baseado no modelo de responsabilidade pessoal e social de Hellison, pretendemos realizar a adaptação e validação do instrumento Personal and Social Responsibility Questionnaire de Li, Wright, Rukavina e Pickering (2008); verificar se os participantes masculinos com maiores níveis de responsabilidade pessoal e social, apresentam maior motivação intrínseca...

The main aim of the research was to examine the relationship between motivational orientations and parents’ behavior with regard to the players’ motivational orientation, motivational climate, enjoyment and amotivation. The sample comprised 723 athletes (M = 12.37, SD = 1.48) and 723 parents (M = 46.46, SD = 2.56). Players were male and female who belonged to federative basketball, handball, football and volleyball teams. Parents and athletes completed questionnaires that assessed motivational orientations, parents’ involvement in the practice as well as enjoyment and motivation in the sport. Results showed a positive relationship between parents’ support of the sport and players’ enjoyment and a negative relationship with players’ amotivation. Moreover, in players who perceived more pressure from their parents, there was a positive association with amotivation and a negative one with enjoyment. Lastly, it was emphasized that appropriate parental participation can promote an increase of players’ enjoyment of and motivation for sport.

The purpose of this research was to study the influence of motivational climate perceived in peers and basic psychological needs (competence, autonomy and relatedness) on self-determined motivation and enjoyment in exercise. A sample comprised of 394 non- competitive physical exercisers, 156 women and 238 men aged between 16 and 54 (M = 21.64, SD = 7. 18), completed the Motivational Climate Perceived in Peers Scale, Scale of Motivational Mediators in Physical Activity, Behavioural Regulation in Exercise Questionnaire-2 and Physical Activity Enjoyment Scale. A correlation analysis between the variables studied, a confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) and structural equation analysis were performed. The results showed that the task- involving peer motivational climate positively predicted the three basic psychological needs (competence, autonomy and relatedness). In turn, meeting the needs for competence and relatedness positively predicted self-determined motivation, which also positively predicted the enjoyment the exercisers had during the activity. There were no significant associations between the ego- involving peer motivational climate and psychological needs. A multisample analysis indicated that the model was invariant across age and degree of exercise involvement. This study reiterates the importance of increasing exercisers’ self-determined motivation in order to obtain more enjoyment and to be more committed to the exercise. Therefore...

With exergames (as with physical activity in general), more intense and longer-duration game play should accrue more health benefits. Exergames, however, appear to be played for relatively short durations, often at medium or lower intensities. Ostensibly games are played for fun or enjoyment. Enhancing the fun or enjoyment experienced during exergame play should enhance the intensity and duration of physical activity, and thereby the health benefits. Research, reviewed herein, indicates fun and/or enjoyment in games are inherently laden with psychosocial, physiological, and embodiment substrates. Physical activity may also have separate or closely related psychosocial, physiological, and embodiment enjoyment substrates. Research is needed to integrate these levels of experience and to identify the game mechanics that enhance, and even maximize, the fun or enjoyment experienced in exergames, to thereby increase the health benefit.

The purpose of this study was to identify student clusters with homogenous profiles in perceptions of task- and ego-involving, autonomy, and social relatedness supporting motivational climate in school physical education. Additionally, we investigated whether different motivational climate groups differed in their enjoyment in PE. Participants of the study were 2 594 girls and 1 803 boys, aged 14-15 years. Students responded to questionnaires assessing their perception of motivational climate and enjoyment in physical education. Latent profile analyses produced a five-cluster solution labeled 1) ‘low autonomy, relatedness, task, and moderate ego climate’ group’, 2) ‘low autonomy, relatedness, and high task and ego climate, 3) ‘moderate autonomy, relatedness, task and ego climate’ group 4) ‘high autonomy, relatedness, task, and moderate ego climate’ group, and 5) ‘high relatedness and task but moderate autonomy and ego climate’ group. Analyses of variance showed that students in clusters 4 and 5 perceived the highest level of enjoyment whereas students in cluster 1 experienced the lowest level of enjoyment. The results showed that the students’ perceptions of various motivational climates created differential levels of enjoyment in PE classes.

The purpose of this study was to compare the effects of Small-Sided Games (SSG) vs. Interval Training (IT) in soccer training on aerobic fitness and physical enjoyment in youth elite soccer players during the last 8 weeks of the season. Seventeen U-16 male soccer players (age = 15.5 ± 0.6 years, and 8.5 years of experience) of a Spanish First Division club academy were randomized to 2 different groups for 6 weeks: SSG group (n = 9) and IT group (n = 8). In addition to the usual technical and tactical sessions and competitive games, the SSG group performed 11 sessions with different SSGs, whereas the IT group performed the same number of sessions of IT. Players were tested before and after the 6-week training intervention with a continuous maximal multistage running field test and the counter movement jump test (CMJ). At the end of the study, players answered the physical activity enjoyment scale (PACES). During the study, heart rate (HR) and session perceived effort (sRPE) were assessed. SSGs were as effective as IT in maintaining the aerobic fitness in elite young soccer players during the last weeks of the season. Players in the SSG group declared a greater physical enjoyment than IT (P = 0.006; ES = 1.86 ± 1.07). Coaches could use SSG training during the last weeks of the season as an option without fear of losing aerobic fitness while promoting high physical enjoyment.

Le taux de participation sportive chez les jeunes canadiens décroît d’année en année et tend à diminuer avec l’âge. La chute plus marquée du taux de pratique sportive lors de l’entrée au secondaire est notamment bien documentée. Cette étude s’intéresse aux obstacles et aux raisons de la pratique sportive ainsi qu’au plaisir ressenti en sport et dans le contexte du cours d’éducation physique. Une méthodologie quantitative a été utilisée pour cette étude. La collecte des données a été réalisée via une enquête par questionnaire accessible en ligne. L’échantillon de convenance est composé de 2001 élèves francophones de la première à la cinquième secondaire qui fréquentaient, au moment de l’étude, un établissement scolaire canadien et francophone. Parmi ces jeunes, 367 d’entre eux ont été inclus dans la catégorie des sportifs (fréquence minimale de pratique sportive de quatre heures par semaine), 241 ex-sportifs et 142 non-sportifs, pour un total de 750 répondants inclus aux analyses. Les résultats indiquent que, de façon générale, l’obstacle le plus important vise les contraintes temporelles, alors que les raisons les plus importantes renvoient à la sensation de plaisir ressenti lors de l’activité sportive elle-même. Les résultats suggèrent par ailleurs des différences selon le type de sportif...

This study examined the effectiveness of a 9-week reading program in improving the phonological awareness (PA) skills of a seven year old boy with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD). The study’s secondary goal was to describe how the participant engaged with and enjoyed the HeadSprout computer program. The participant attended a one hour reading program incorporating 30 minutes of HeadSprout Early Reading three days a week for 9 weeks. Results demonstrated that the participant’s PA scores increased from the 16th percentile at pre-test to the 35th percentile post program. Four of five measures of PA increased, segmenting nonwords decreased to the 2nd percentile post program. Momentary time sampling procedures revealed the participant was engaged with the computer program 94.5% of the time. Perceived ratings of enjoyment indicated the participant enjoyed using the program. Specific components of the program which may have influenced participant enjoyment and engagement are discussed. Study limitations and implications of these findings are discussed in reference to future research.

The purpose of the present study was to examine two leadership styles of personal trainers (bland versus enriched) to evaluate their effects on exercise-related outcomes. Participants were 103 university women with no previous experience weight training. Participants were randomly assigned to one of the two leadership style conditions. They completed primary measures prior to being introduced to the personal trainer. Next, participants completed an introductory weight training session, followed by post-manipulation measures. The leadership styles were successfully manipulated. Participants in the enriched leadership style condition reported significantly higher levels of enjoyment and intention to exercise. Participants in the bland leadership style condition reported significantly higher levels of social anxiety; no differences were found for task self-efficacy, self-presentational efficacy, social physique anxiety, or handgrip performance between groups. Thus, an enriched leadership style of personal trainers can increase positive psychological outcomes.

non-peer-reviewed; This paper reports on a sixteen week Sport Education (SE) unit with just over 70 Year 5 students (mean age 10.04 years) in one UK school during the spring and summer terms of 2001 and discusses students’ experiences of SE. Student interviews were conducted throughout the season and a questionnaire on different aspects of motivation were administered prior to, and on completion of, the SE season. We report and examine the data in relation to a number of hypothesized influences on fun and enjoyment, including being part of a team, autonomy, competition and winning and improvement in game play, social interaction and being with friends, competition and winning, perception of sport competence and autonomy.

The current study examined associations between physical education (PE) class enjoyment and sociodemographic, personal, and perceived school environment factors among early adolescent girls. Participants included 1,511 sixth-grade girls who completed baseline assessments for the Trial of Activity in Adolescent Girls, with 50% indicating they enjoyed PE class a lot. Variables positively associated with PE class enjoyment included physical activity level, perceived benefits of physical activity, self-efficacy for leisure time physical activity, and perceived school climate for girls' physical activity as influenced by teachers, while body mass index was inversely associated with PE class enjoyment. After adjusting for all variables in the model, PE class enjoyment was significantly greater in Blacks than in Whites. In model testing, with mutual adjustment for all variables, self-efficacy was the strongest correlate of PE class enjoyment, followed by perceived benefits, race/ethnicity, and teacher's support for girls' physical activity, as compared to boys, at school. The overall model explained 11% of the variance in PE class enjoyment. Findings suggest that efforts to enhance girls' self-efficacy and perceived benefits and to provide a supportive PE class environment that promotes gender equality can potentially increase PE class enjoyment among young girls.

Considerando que o autismo suscita questões referentes ao momento mais primitivo da constituição da subjetividade, o trabalho aborda inicialmente as particularidades implicadas no gozo que, segundo a teoria psicanalítica, estabelece a representação como uma inscrição no inconsciente ao atrelar o sujeito ao Outro. Em seguida, o gozo no autismo, na medida em que se situa num aquém da representação, é abordado a partir do conceito de alíngua proposto por Lacan como o precursor da representação como gozo.; Considerando que el autismo plantea cuestiones relativas a las fechas más primitivas de la subjetividad, el texto aborda inicialmente las particularidades que participan del goce que, de acuerdo con la teoría psicoanalítica, postula la representación como una inscripción en el inconsciente que vincula el sujeto al Otro.

Consumers’ beliefs can influence enjoyment via beliefs about a product (e.g., whether a wine is believed to be high quality) and explored beliefs about themselves (e.g., where the consumers believes they have the expertise to appreciate any high qualities in a wine). Across nine experiments in five domains (e.g. film, tea, wine) we seek to better understand this latter and far less understood component by experimentally altering people’s subjective expertise (beliefs about ability in a consumption domain) independent of their real expertise and independent of real or framed differences in products’ qualities. We find subjective expertise alone generally increases two sources of enjoyments, item enjoyment (the enjoyment of an item’s qualities such as liking an item’s flavor) and process enjoyment (the enjoyment of consumer processes such as critically evaluating an item’s flavor). Importantly though, when consumption items are perceived to be lower quality, the subjective expertise effect on item enjoyment is eliminated but remains positive for process enjoyment. Additionally, subjective expertise leads consumers to engage in more actions and effort to improve their consumption (e.g. stirring a drink, learning more about a consumption item). This project improves general understanding of consumer expertise and consumer beliefs...

Online emotional experiences and their relationship to cognitive states are of growing interest. This study investigates one emotional experience - enjoyment - and its impact on informal online learning. The concept of enjoyable online learning, namely online learning that is not part of a formal instructional undertaking, has not been well studied or understood. The study treats enjoyment as a complex and multi-dimensional construct. A field study was conducted with an operational museum website and 1,815 participants. A cross-over experimental design was employed. Structural equation models were constructed to evaluate the relationship between the web enjoyment experience and informal online learning outcomes. This relationship was significant for all three experimental conditions. Analysis also showed relationships among the website design feature of interactivity, the user's level of enjoyment and informal learning outcomes: (i) the degree of interactivity influences the level of enjoyment; (ii) the degree of interactivity influences informal learning outcomes. Not all results, however, were in the expected direction. The study points to the need for more research in this complex area.

This study questions the possibility of investigating relations between the cultural industry and the dynamics of the satisfaction with consumption in the contemporaneous world, based on the conception of individual taken as the particular reach of the consciousness subject affected by the unconsciousness dimension. The study proposes to redirect to the unconsciousness subject conception, which can be assigned a universality of structure and the subjection of social links to the historical objectivity. This change of focus allows to consider the imperative of enjoyment as the consumption society’s ideology: the ideology power, when losing pretension to autonomy and adapting to the material reality (Horhkeimer and Adorno), shifts from characteristic “persuation” and “self-deceiving” to a concrete and corporal dimension of compulsivity and drive. For being supported by alienating fixations of the subject, the ideology states and supports the neurotic and compulsive condition of the consumerism and the search of particular satisfaction as a norm.; Se cuestiona la posibilidad de investigar las relaciones entre la industria cultural y la dinámica de la satisfacción con el consumo en el mundo contemporáneo a partir de la concepción del individuo comprendido como ámbito particular del sujeto de la conciencia afectado por la dimensión del inconsciente.

The purpose of this daily diary study was to investigate whether a positive experience initiated at work (i.e., work enjoyment) may have an indirect impact on employees' significant others. Based on Fredrickson's broaden-and-build theory (2001) we predicted that daily work enjoyment would be positively related to own daily well-being (spillover) and, in turn, daily well-being would be transmitted to the partner (crossover). Eighty couples participated in the study. Participants filled in a diary booklet during five consecutive working days. Overall, results supported our hypotheses. This study is the first to provide evidence for an upward spiral initiated at work and transferred at home in the form of couples' increased well-being.

The purpose of this paper is to show how teachers' experiences of one dimension of enjoyment of work, namely joy as a subtle atmosphere, can be described and understood from a lifeworld perspective. The lifeworld phenomenological approach contributes to the whole research design and provides the concepts that form the theoretical basis for the analysis. The specific lifeworld concepts used are 'intertwinement', 'natural attitude', 'pre-predicativity', 'intentionality' and 'intersubjectivity'. Using these concepts, the results illuminate and describe the meanings of enjoyment of work, based on what the teachers expressed in interviews. The empirical study consisted of interviews with five teachers working with pupils aged seven to nine years. The results illuminate some vital and fundamental characteristics of teachers' experiences of enjoyment of work and its significance. These characteristics include its basic function and its inherent possibility for opening up the whole classroom situation to the teachers. In this sense, enjoyment of work is similar to standing in a doorway and involves an expectant foreshadowing. The study also found that teachers' experiences of joy are intertwined with their experiences of flow and control. The results found that enjoyment of work was significant in the sense of the confirmation of good work...
