Play Episode 42 Here

Some sessions are going to go places we don’t want them to. When that starts to happen we can hope to be skillful in moving things to the better direction. If we can see early on that we’re not likely to be successful at redirecting attention later, it can be a good idea to pre-establish a contract so we’ll have something to lean on when it comes time to ask for a pause or when we interrupt.

In this episode I mention an earlier blog piece on the same subject of establishing and leaning on the contact which you can read here.
