|Official title||Adjustment and Self-Management Intervention Groups for Youth With Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus|
|Principal investigator||Jessica Kichler, PhD|
|Description||The purpose of this research study is to find out what effects the Group Therapy Project has on parents and child's management of Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus (T1DM). We want to start a group therapy program that looks at youth and family adjustment and coping at the Cincinnati Children's Hospital with patients who have T1DM. There has been research before on this group therapy and we want to look at it in a "typical" clinical setting at Cincinnati Children's Hospital. This research is being done to understand how a peer and family-based group can be helpful by looking at survey data as well as medical data before and after participating in the group therapy program. This information will help us further develop prevention and intervention programs for other youth with T1DM and their families.|
