then she will give one of his jazz records to the library
Defining the Behavioural Contract
Aka contingency contract or performance contract
A written agreement between 2 parties in which one or both parties agree to engage in a specified
level of target behaviour or behaviours
Contract states the consequence that will be administered contingent on occurrence (or non-
occurrence) of behaviour
Components of a Behavioural Contract
Identifying target behaviours
Stating how target behaviours will be measured
oClients must be able to prove that target behaviours did or did not occur so that
contingencies can be implemented correctly
Stating when behaviour must be performed
Identifying the reinforcement or punishment contingency
Identify who will implement the contingency
Types of Behavioural Contracts
One-party contracts
oAka unilateral contract
oOne person seeks to change target behaviour and arranges reinforcement or punishment
contingencies with a contract manager, who implements contingencies
oUsed when person wants to increase desirable behaviours or decrease undesirable
behaviours
oContract manager must not stand to gain from contract contingencies
Two-party contracts
oBilateral contract
oBoth parties identify target behaviours for change and contingencies that will be
implemented for target behaviours
oWritten between people who have some relationship with each other
oEach party is displeased with some behaviour of the other party and contract identifies
behaviour changes that will be pleasing for both
oQuid pro quo contract: one thing is given in return for another
Why do Behavioural Contracts Influence Behaviour?

Rule-governed behaviour
oContract establishes a rule that contractee states later in appropriate circumstances as
prompt or self-instruction to engage in target behaviour
