Diabetes – A Psychological Perspective

This informal workshop will focus on the often hidden or unnoticed psychological challenges of adjusting to diabetes. There will be a discussion on the main sources of diabetes distress and how these might be identified in health practice or at home, which will involve some interactive work to get people thinking about their own experiences of diabetes. We will also discuss diabetes burnout and how diabetes affects family members.

The final part of the workshop will focus on what can help to support individuals with the challenges they face and some useful tips for health practice or day to day life.
