Diabetes is a chronic condition with a significant impact on short- and long-term health. In adolescence, diabetes management is further complicated by a complex interaction of physical and psychosocial factors which teenagers, parents and healthcare professionals often find difficult to manage. There are few indicators of practical and effective psychosocial interventions; however, motivational interviewing has been shown to be effective in a range of healthcare settings. This article describes the clinical application of ideas developed from two research studies looking at the effectiveness of motivational interviewing with teenagers with diabetes.
