3. You will use at least two articles on counselor attitudes towards those with substance abuse problems and at least one on counselor empathy towards those with substance abuse problems to explain how counselors can help clients with substance abuse problems. Note, some studies explore empathy among those with a substance abuse problem; do not include those.

4. You will use the article on counselor attitudes towards those with substance abuse issues to support the thesis that counselor attitudes towards the client make a difference. Connect this idea to the discussion on empathy towards those with substance abuse problems.

5. You will explain how your experiences shed light on the need for counselors to be aware of their biases, prejudices and to be able to empathize with the challenges of total abstinence for clients who may have to give up a behavior or drug forever.
