Establishing the Therapeutic Contract

This one-hour seminar will introduce participants to a model for establishing the therapeutic contract. Often counselors and social workers begin the process without the client’s clearly defined goal for change. The contract is the client’s commitment with the help of the therapist to change feelings or behavior or both. A contract must be clear, concise, and direct. Negotiating the contract requires careful attention both to the client’s language and nonverbal communication and an awareness of the client’s willingness to participate in an authentic contract for change.

Learning Objectives:


  • Participant will be able to delineate between “contact, contract, and con” when establishing a counseling contract.
  • Participant will be able to identify a clear and concise contract in which client the client is willing to accept responsibility for change.
  • Participants will categorize three impasses which impede the establishment of the contract.
