The purpose of this study was to determinethe effectiveness of A Training Program Based onSelf- determination Theory in improving SocialMotivation for 10th students in Jordan, Thesample of the study consisted of (68) male childrenfrom UNRWA schools in 10th grades, who wererandomly divided into two equal groups, a controland an experimental group. To achieve the goalsof the study, a training program، consisting of (16)sessions was developed.

The resultswere discussed, and a number of recommendationswere suggested.
