Overview

Whatever the particular services being provided, client engagement is a key. Engagement can occur within minutes or take much longer to establish and maintain. It is the degree to which someone feels like a comfortable and active participant in the consultation. In the helping professions, people who are actively engaged are more likely to stay, adhere to, and benefit from service provision. It is the fuel that drives any good service (Miller and Rollnick, 2013).
