Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) Approach Improves Glycaemic Control, Patient Satisfaction and Patient Engagement in Children and Young People with T1DM

Summary

This novel project started in 2014 working in collaboration with the clinical psychologists services training all diabetes team members in the SFBT (Solution Focused Brief Therapy) approach over 12 months. It works from the premise that the SFBT therapy should be a routine feature of the diabetes team’s care and viewed as more of a life coaching approach than a rescue for psychological problems. It sees children who have type 1 diabetes as just that, not a child who is diabetes.
