Season 3 Episode 23 Hey P-Soupers! I wanted to present a simple and useful resource for these extraordinary times and I also bring a very special guest - my 84 year old Dad, Big G. We have a chat about Basic Psychological Needs Theory which states that people strive to satisfy three innate needs, namely autonomy, belonging and competence (in every area of life). * Autonomy - is about the need to feel that our pursuits are self governed and self endorsed. Or in other words, to feel we have control over what we do. * Belonging - is about being connected socially and feeling integrated into a social group. * Competence - is about the need to be effective in our efforts; so we feel like we're developing skills and gaining knowledge. Some researchers called Deci and Ryan assert that needs for competence, relatedness, and autonomy are universal – they are essential, regardless of culture and life domain (Deci and Ryan, 1985b, 2000; Ryan and Deci, 2002). Have a listen to hear how my Dad has been approaching his physical isolation and considering the ABC of Autonomy, Belonging and Competence. He's a role model for us all. I also consider the values for the podcast moving forward. We're going to be focusing on Compassion, Connection and Collaboration - consider our next episodes to be The 3Cs Chronicles.
