How to Parent a Teen with T1D

Episode #79

Being a teenager is tough.

Being a teen with T1D is extremely challenging. 

From navigating relationships with family, friends, and teachers to gaining independence and eventually moving out on their own, diabetes can put a wrench in the already landmine-ridden world of adolescence.

But this doesn't mean that all hope is lost!

My guest on this episode of The Diabetes Psychologist Podcast is Dr. Kenneth Gorfinke. Dr. Ken is a psychologist who works with teens and their parents to help them improve their relationship when it comes to living with type 1 diabetes. In this episode, Dr. Ken talks about how he approaches this work and gives some tips on how parents and teens can put these skills into action.
