Positive Parenting for Healthy Living with Type 1 Diabetes
If you are a parent of a child aged 2 to 10 years who has been diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, you may be interested in this Triple P program.
For what can be an emotional rollercoaster for families,the diagnosis of Type 1 Diabetes involves a daily struggle with illness management that can often go hand in hand with behavioural issues, particularly whilst adjusting to the lifestyle changes required. Thousands of children across Australia suffer from this disease, which is why the University of Queensland’s Psychology department has created this new Triple P program – Positive Parenting for Healthy Living with Type 1 Diabetes.
The university is currently asking for volunteers to assist in research into whether the Triple P program is effective for parents of children in the 2 to 10 year old age group who are living with Type 1 Diabetes. Through this project, parents will have access to the Triple P for Healthy Living program and be able to attend the program free of charge. You will additionally be asked to complete two sets of assessments over a 6 month period, each involving a questionnaire and a family observation.
