This useful, practical workshop addresses one of the most challenging, possibly overlooked, areas in diabetes care - how to support people with their emotional as well as physical health.  Diabetes can have a profound effect on emotions, both in the short and long term, and can lead to difficulties in self-care as well as interactions and engagements with health professionals and others providing care. Conversely, experiencing difficult emotions and coinciding mental health challenges and diagnoses can make living with diabetes much more burdensome.  Health professionals often say they feel ill-equipped to deal with emotional issues in diabetes clinical situations, or to pro-actively assess these

This workshop supports participants to gain more practical knowledge of diabetes and emotions, by describing and exploring the different aspects through our always-appreciated practical and interactive activities. Uniquely, we also present and teach ways to assess and monitor emotional health, most importantly to the advantage of individual people in day to day clinical encounters, and also in your clinic population. We explore which tools to use and how they can enhance your clinical practice and evidence base

Participants will leave with new knowledge and confidence to manage emotional aspects of  diabetes and an action plan to incorporate emotional care equally with physical care. As with all Successful Diabetes workshops, they will have participated in an enjoyable learning experience provided by experts in diabetes, education and facilitation
