Therapeutic or Treatment engagement is usually defined as treatment retention. Although treatment retention generally is conceptualized as the opposite of treatment dropout and attrition, the construct of engagement in therapy is not as clearly defined. Engagement has been defined as a function of duration of treatment and intensity (i.e., number of individual and group sessions attended in a particular program), participation and therapeutic relationship, number of sessions attended, and motivation.
