Abstract and Keywords

Diabetes mellitus has serious implications for both the individual and society. An understanding of associated psychological processes and interventions is critical in supporting people with diabetes. Factors thought to be important in optimal diabetes management are presented here, and potential difficulties experienced by patients are examined. This chapter deals with the cognitive, emotional, motivational, and psychosocial factors associated with the treatment of people with diabetes. Implications for practice are considered, including health service delivery factors and methods to facilitate self-management and address demoralization. Depression, anxiety, and eating disorders are examined. The whole person model is presented as a method of applying a cognitive-behavioral model within a biopsychosocial multidisciplinary framework. The role of clinical psychology in the care of people with diabetes is also considered.

Keywords: Diabetes, depression, cognitive-behavioral therapy, self-management, disease management, demoralization
