Within this intervention the therapist becomes the listener while the client is theexpert (Li, Zhu, Tse, Tse, & Wong, 2016). Goals that may be set by the social worker would beto develop discrepancy and support self-efficacy (Li, Zhu, Tse, Tse, & Wong, 2016). Socialworkers might also work to move through client resistance from this intervention by notforcing the clients into acceptance but buy letting the client move to acceptance on their ownterms (Madson, Schumacher, Baer, & Martino, 2016).Advantages and Disadvantages InterventionsAdolescents benefit from being able to engage with their parents. In the case ofJayQuan and Shaniqua, the duo would be able to experience goal setting and change togetherand individually. PACT works to serve individuals on their own level (Van Hasselt, Hersen,Null, Ammerman, Bukstein, McGillivray & Hunter (1993). The PACT program isadvantageous in its ability to incorporate the client’s whole systems of functions to resolveissues (Van Hasselt, Hersen, Null, Ammerman, Bukstein, McGillivray & Hunter (1993). PACTworks closely to solve issues between parents and their participating child; however, PACTalso address problems involving the siblings (Van Hasselt, Hersen, Null, Ammerman,Bukstein, McGillivray & Hunter (1993). The primary goal of PACT Is to promote familyadapting. In contrast, The PACT program intervention is not generalizable to all populations(Van Hasselt, Hersen, Null, Ammerman, Bukstein, McGillivray & Hunter (1993). Thisintervention has been developed to exclusively benefit African American families. Along witha lack of generalizability, PACT may not be available within all communities (Van Hasselt,Hersen, Null, Ammerman, Bukstein, McGillivray & Hunter (1993).

This intervention has been used to resolve substance abuse withinindividuals. Benefits of this intervention include a treatment of mental illness and substanceabuse. . Many therapists use this interventions technique to help motivate those whoexperience substance abuse stop abusing drugs (Wahab, 2005).By teaching patients to visualizea future without substance abuse or mental health struggles, social workers are able to helppatients accept the idea of changing their lives without assistance (Wahab, 2005). Motivationsinterviewing helps patients to talk through their problems, as well as helps them to be morereceptive to treatment(Wahab, 2005). This intervention also teaches patients to takeresponsibilities for themselves and buildconfidence and trust (Wahab, 2005). When anintervention is beneficial treatment outcomes are improved. Disadvantages of this methodinclude no method for resistant clients, ineffective leaders, and no urgency in encouragementof change (Wahab, 2005). The positive outcomes of motivational interviews weigh heavily onthe client’s ability and willingness to work with the professional to change their behavior.
