Is your family struggling with the challenges of coping with a type 1 diabetes? Working one-on-one with a mental health provider, parents will share their concerns and work to construct a plan to develop healthy relationships within the family as well as strategies for coping with the stresses of diabetes management.
Traverse Counseling & Consulting offers a 90-minute Type 1 Tune-up for parents of children and adolescents to support and empower parents to lead their children into healthy, balanced lives.
During the tune-up, the therapist will coach parents on:
- Identifying strategies for addressing the emotional and relational challenges that accompany day-to-day management, such as diabetes distress, caregiver fatigue, and adolescent rebellion.
- Determining how to best fit technology into their child’s diabetes management with age-appropriate expectations and access.
- Brainstorming solutions for the specific struggles of their family, such as two-family households, additional caregivers, other chronic illnesses, or other family stressors.
- Gaining a greater understanding of brain development and age-appropriate expectations.
Cost is $75 per family. Schedule by calling 952-595-5967.Traverse Counseling & Consulting offers workshops, coaching and counseling for those impacted by chronic illness.
