Learn To Effectively Manage Denial
In The Treatment Of Addiction And Related
Personality And Mental Disorders
Denial Management Counseling (DMC) is designed to help
people overcome denial, recognize their addiction, and make a personal commitment to recovery.
DMC training shows participants how to successfully
manage clients exhibiting strong denial and treatment resistance. DMC uses a master
treatment plan for interrupting denial resistance
and teaching clients to recognize and manage their own denial.
Denial is a normal and natural response for coping with
and overwhelming problems. DMC provides
a practical system for describing the twelve most common denial patterns and guiding clients through a series of exercises that help them to identify and more effectively manage their own denial.
The structured DMC exercises
teach clients how to recognize and effectively stop their denial when it occurs so they can identify and clarify the
problems that caused them to seek help. Clients are then guided through the
process of making a firm and deep commitment to taking a next step in recovery.
