Van Wormer (2007) article and pages 278-283 in our text and watching the counseling video, please explain the

strengths and weaknesses of using motivational interviewing in treating clients that are abusing substances. Below, I listed a few of the key-concepts from this approach that I gathered as I read the article and watched the video. What other components would you add to this list?
