  2. Summarize the technique of weighing advantages and disadvantages of a potentially problematic habit or behavior.
  3. Differentiate when motivational interviewing is more likely to be effective to reduce marijuana use.
  4. Explain how to balance recommendations to change harmful behaviors with respecting the autonomy and agency of children and adolescents.
