Thoughts on Termination: Practical Considerations

Kathy A. Garcia-Lawson, Ph.D. and Robert C. Lane, Ph.D.

This article reviews the literature on planned and forced termination. An overview of topics, including criteria for termination, technique of termination, and reactions to termination due to the sudden death of a therapist, is presented. We also examine the posttermination phase, subsequent therapy, and positive effects of forced termination. The purpose of this article is to add to the existing body of knowledge in the area of termination and to provide clinicians with therapeutic guidelines that can prove very useful in addressing patients' reactions to untimely and forced termination.
