Psychological Aspects of Diabetes Mellitus in Children

  • Alan M. Delamater
Part of the Advances in Clinical Child Psychology book series (ACCP, volume 9)


Diabetes mellitus is the most common metabolic disease of childhood. Many children with diabetes have disease-related problems (e.g., family conflict over regimen adherence, peer relationship difficulties) that are best understood and approached from a psychological perspective. Effective treatment, therefore, requires consideration of psychological and behavioral factors, as well as biomedical factors (Drash, 1981; Fisher, Delamater, Bertelson, & Kirkley, 1982; Hamburg, Lipsett, Inoff, & Drash, 1980). In recent years, as the psychological aspects of childhood diabetes have been better understood, psychologists have played an increasingly important role in diabetes care.
