Psychological Support Intervention using Art Therapy for Patients with Type 1 Diabetes

Summary

This pilot programme offers brief and long-term art psychotherapy to support individuals with a diagnosis of type 1 diabetes. Subjects received individual and group therapy sessions, depending on their therapeutic needs, and explored themes of self-esteem and identity, as well as coping mechanisms. The preliminary results of this study show a significant reduction of Hba1c scores compared to the control group.
