Effect of Stress Management Coaching Intervention on Adult Learners with Type 2 Diabetes: A Rational-Emotive Cognitive Behavioural Coaching Approach

AbstractIn developing regions, adult learners who are diabetic may not afford conventional diabetes care due to their income status and financial burdens. The present study determined the effect of a rational-emotive cognitive behavioural coaching (RE-CBC) as a stress management program for assisting adult learners with type 2 diabetes achieve reduced stress level. The study sample comprised 119 adult learners who were diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and were stressed. These were assigned to either an intervention group (n  = 60) or a waitlisted control group (n = 59). While the control group participants were waitlisted for 12 weeks, the intervention group received RE-CBC treatment within this period. Participants' stress scores were computed at baseline, post-test and follow-up. The results demonstrate that adult learners who participated in RE-CBC showed significantly reduced stress level at post-test which was maintained at follow-up compared to those in the waitlisted control group.

Last week I described some of the reasons for using a case formulation approach when working through initial assessment information, and today I’m going to describe one approach for organising a formulation. This is the “4 P” formulation, and it’s one that’s often used in mental health (Bolton, 2014). In the 4 P model, there are four questions to ask yourself: Preconditions – Why is this person vulnerable to this problem?Precipitating factors – Why now? This can mean “why is this person having symptoms now?” or “why is this person presenting to this person ...

AbstractSleep disorders are linked to development of type 2 diabetes and increase the risk of developing diabetes complications. Treating sleep disorders might therefore play an important role in the prevention of diabetes progression. However, the detection and treatment of sleep disorders are not part of standardised care for people with type 2 diabetes. To highlight the importance of sleep disorders in people with type 2 diabetes, we provide a review of the literature on the prevalence of sleep disorders in type 2 diabetes and the association between sleep disorders and health outcomes, such as glycaemic control, microv...

Walthall Ian D. Jones Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) is an adapted form of cognitive behavioural therapy. ACT focuses on how thinking affects behaviour and promotes psychological flexibility. The prevalence of psychological distress among people living with cardiovascular disease (CVD) and/or type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is high, and ACT may offer an alternative treatment approach. This scoping review explored the use of ACT as an intervention to support adults living with CVD and/or T2DM. A systematic search of the literature resulted in the inclusion of 15 studies. Studies were reviewed using the Joanna...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewAmong adults with type 2 diabetes (T2D), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy, and mindfulness interventions have demonstrated improvement in depression, anxiety, and glycemic control. We assessed whether these treatment modalities have shown usefulness in adolescents with T2D or at risk for T2D.Recent FindingsData are limited on the use of the abovementioned therapeutic interventions and include only adolescent girls at risk for T2D. CBT was as useful as health education sessions. At 1  year, greater decreases in depression, insulin resistance, and BMI were ob...

Conclusion: Phentermine–topiramate could be helpful for weight loss and reduction of binge-eating symptoms in patients with obesity or overweight in addition to BED. Controlled studies are warranted. Binge-eating disorder (BED), an eating disorder recognized in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, fifth edition (DSM-5), is characterized by recurrent and distressing episodes of binge eating (eating an unusually large amount of food with a sense of loss of control over eating) without inappropriate compensatory weight-loss behaviors.1 Known as the most common eating disorder, BED is strongly assoc...
