Thinking about the therapeutic approaches discussed in CHCAOD008, answer the following three questions:

1.     Firstly, what is your personal reflection on the various therapeutic approaches? For example, you might discuss which you think have the most benefits, which you feel most comfortable with etc.
2.     Secondly, what motivates you to change? (You, rather than a person in general.)
3.     Thirdly, describe a situation in your life where you have made a change and the things that influenced that change? (Please note, do not disclose anything too personal here. You may describe what motivated you to change your diet, or your lifestyle).
