Quick Reference

A written agreement between two individuals (e.g. a coach and athlete) referring to desired behavioural changes and the consequences of those changes. The contract usually includes a description of the behaviour that is to be changed, the punishment for breaking the contract, the reward for successful completion of the contract, the names and signatures of the contract partners, and the date. Behavioural contracts can be very effective in changing a wide range of behaviour, including excessive aggression.
