The importance of self-determined motivation towards physical activity in patients with schizophrenia


There is a need for theoretically-based research on the motivational processes linked to the commence- ment and continuation of physical activity in patients with schizophrenia. Within the Self-Determination Theory (SDT) framework, we investigated the SDT tenets in these patients by examining the factor structure of the Behavioral Regulation in Exercise.
