Anna’s study aims to better understand music’s influences on well-being by exploring connections between adolescents’ school-based musical engagement and their perceived psychological well-being in a mixed-methods multiple case study. Guiding her study are theoretical assumptions of Basic Psychological Needs Theory (BPNT), a sub-branch of Self-Determination Theory (Ryan & Deci, 2000), which state that satisfaction versus frustration of three universal needs for Autonomy, Competence, and Relatedness leads to increasing versus diminishing psychological well-being.

In this presentation, Anna will outline some of the theoretical and methodological challenges involved in applying a psychological theory within a research framework that values in-depth, emergent and culturally-sensitive approaches. All are welcome, especially those interested in researching from multi-/inter-/trans-disciplinary perspectives!
