Chapter 21 explores client engagement and the reasons why clients may or may not take up an internet intervention. Typically, engagement is affected by an interplay of factors associated with the intervention itself (such as its attractiveness and ease of navigation), as well as aspects specific to the individual client, such as his/her expectations about the benefits of the program and perceptions about the time, effort, skill level, and financial cost that will be involved in using it. This chapter recommends that, in order to facilitate engagement, LI practitioners should explore clients’ views about receiving treatment via the internet and address any concerns that they may have. Once clients are engaged, the next important step is to promote adherence to and completion of the LI internet intervention. Evidence suggests that brief weekly support increases adherence and completion of online treatments.
