This useful, practical workshop addresses one of the most challenging, sometimes 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

The impacts of Covid-19 have recently had many effects on mental health and diabetes, for example health-related anxiety, isolation and bereavement as well as more limited contacts with health professionals

For all these reasons, our workshop is offered to help you refresh and expand your skills in emotional health support as well as the equally important physical and clinical care you provide

This workshop supports participants to gain more practical knowledge of diabetes and emotions, by describing and exploring the different aspects through presentations and practical and interactive activities. Uniquely, we also present and teach ways to assess and monitor emotional health, both 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
