Contingency Contracts With Truants
Brooks, David B.
Personnel and Guidance Journal, 52, 5, 316-320, Jan 74
Two case studies are presented in which contingency contracting, a form of behavior modification, was successfully used to increase school attendance. The author delineates four positive aspects of this approach: (1) it is economical; (2) responsibility is placed on the student; (3) parents can be included in the contract, giving them some responsibility; and (4) the willingness of the counselor to work out a contract indicates he cares.
