This would involve preparing clients for termination, helping clients cope with their reactions to termination, following agency guidelines, and completing all termination activities in an ethical manner of practice.

Each termination plan is unique in that it is directed by the needs and capacity of the client. Thus, the methods and process of each termination are guided by the unique characteristics of the population that the practitioner is engaged in.
