Help clients unlock their own potential to stop living in denial and take ownership of their recovery! In this Addiction Course, recovery pioneer Terry Gorski illustrates how to use techniques from the Denial Management Counseling (DMC) model to talk with clients who are exhibiting strong denial and treatment resistance.
