Writing Behavioral Contracts; A Case Simulation Practice Manual.
DeRisi, William J.; Butz, George
This book on writing behavioral contracts is structured to give the reader an opportunity to use contingency contracting in a situation that resembles the real world. Contracting is a technique used to structure behavior counseling by making each of the necessary elements of the process so clear and explicit that they may be written into an agreement for behavior change that is understandable and acceptable to everyone involved. Contracting is also a means of scheduling the exchange of positive reinforcements between two or more persons. The reader is introduced to the basic principles of contracting through the use of a sample case, and through exercises that will enable him/her to write behavioral contracts. Some elements of these exercises are left to chance. The exercises are designed so that sometimes things will go well and at other times chance will cause the reader to change his/her tactics. The last unit of the book contains detailed strategies collected from several programs that use contracting extensively. (RC)
