Abstract [en]

The article focuses on the psychological challenges faced by disabled athletes competing in the Paralympic Games, as explained within the framework of Self-Determination Theory. It advises coaches and sports psychologists to develop a nuanced mindset about physical difference for them to provide psychosocial support to disabled athletes. It also informs them that they can employ Acceptance Commitment Therapy to help Paralympians deal with the stresses of performing in stressful situations.
