1993 Hard Cover. 233 pp. Mithaug's Self-Regulation Theory explains how people optimize their adjustments in order to maximize their gains toward getting what they want from their environments. Although the theory is consistent with current behavioral, cognitive, and cognitive-behavioral models of adjustment, it goes beyond them by describing the problem-solving and solution-doing mechanisms that lead to optimal adjustments and maximal gains. This allows the theory to predict precise relationships between self-regulated gain towards goal attainment and its consequences. It also permits the theory to demonstrate how such concepts as competence, intelligence, self-determination, and innovation are logical derivatives of self-regulation and gain.
