Abstract :

D iabetes is known to be associated with high levels of psychological morbidity which are well documented. These cause problems with diabetes management and subsequent complications of retinopathy, neuropathy and nephropathy. According to Diabetes UK, over a third of patients in poor control are due to psychological difficulties. Comprehensive psychological treatments, which focus on the way in which people feel, think and act towards their diabetes are therefore required. Cognitive analytic therapy is an integrated psychotherapy developed by Ryle. This approach looks at the underlying reasons why people with diabetes will sabotage their condition despite high levels of input from their physicians and specialist nurses and dieticians and despite deterioration in health and disability. The presenter will argue that complex problems such as diabetes require complex psychological solutions which should be integrated in to working with the multidisciplinary diabetes team. Actual case studies and the process of psychotherapy will be presented.
