Treatment Contracts and sessional contracts  Eric Berne the originator of Transactional Analysis (TA) was a firm advocate of contracting.  He saw contacting as  a 'bi lateral' agreement towards a specific outcome.   In this episode Bob and Jacci explore.  Do we give ‘homework so the client can process and integrate parts of themselves in-between sessions?   Journaling – Is it a good thing? Bob kept a diary from the age of 21 to 33 before he entered therapy at 35, he says’ keeping a diary is such a cathartic expression.   Educative Therapy Enabling the client to take ownership, not only of knowledge they didn’t know but also part of their own history emotionally too. !!CAVIAT!! Check out the clients support mechanisms prior to suggesting learning outside the therapy room.   Disadvantages of psychological contracts. They can be task driven encouraging the adaptive part of the client. Focuses of awareness and interruptions to contact can be activated with contracting.   Client led contracting can also be used in some modalities of therapy.   Brief task driven contracts can be useful for some clients as can exploratory contracts. CBT is often short-term task driven specific and measurable.   Flexibility within the therapeutic process around contracting is important.  Both therapist and client need to know the direction the therapy is going in order to maintain the bi lateral contract     Don't forget to follow us on iTunes and leave us a review so others can find out about 'The Therapy Show Podcast'   The Therapy Show - Behind Closed Doors.  * Do you want to know what actually happens behind closed doors of the therapy session?   * Do you want to explore the mind of a master psychotherapist and demystify the therapeutic process?   * Do you want to know about the various models of psychotherapy and counselling and how they are implemented within the therapeutic hour?   * Do you want to know the makings of a professional psychotherapist and how to achieve that goal?   Bob Cooke, an international Psychotherapist , Trainer and Supervisor, talks with Jacci Jones about the world of therapy and counselling.   Jacci Jones is herself a Psychotherapist and Coach.   These podcasts are for anyone interested in the questions above and psychotherapy in general.   The podcasts are aimed at people who are curious in psychotherapy and counselling, how therapy works, and how therapy helps you towards a more healthy sense of self, both mentally and spiritually.  The podcasts will also be of interest to students of therapy and counselling and what it takes to be a psychotherapist and counsellor in the 21st century.   Bob Cooke, who is the Founder of the Manchester Institute of Psychotherapy - UK -  will through the conversations with Jacci Jones help “demystify” the therapeutic hours and therapy session.   Finally, the podcasts will also be aimed at people who might be interested in the variety of methods and techniques of the various different therapeutic models such as Transactional Analysis, Person Centred Counselling, Gestalt Psychotherapy and Integrative Psychotherapy.     So please join us on this voyage of discovery and co-creative conversations.   https://bobcooke.org/  https://jaccijones.co.uk/​  #therapy #psychotherapy #livinglifebeinghuman #positivethoughts #positivemind #positivelife #dailymotivation #keepmovingforward #personalgrowth #mentalhealthawareness #helpothers #innerstrength #believeinyou #endthestigma #breakthesilence #talkaboutit #stopthestigma #mentalillnessawareness #anxietyrecovery #mentalhealthrecovery #anxietysupport
