Healthy coping is a key self-care behavior for people with prediabetes and diabetes. Although stress alone does not cause type 2 diabetes, stress can affect blood sugar, insulin resistance, weight, sleep, and more. For people with prediabetes, stress can lead to stress eating, skipping physical activity, and even dropping out of the lifestyle change program. This webinar discusses how lifestyle coaches can encourage healthy coping behaviors for people with prediabetes. Speakers will discuss what stress is, how stress affects people with prediabetes, and how people with prediabetes can identify healthy ways to cope with stress.
This webinar counts toward the CDC requirement of 2 hours of continuing education for lifestyle coaches.
Learners will have the tools, strategies, and confidence to provide individualized care to people with prediabetes to support the ADCES7 Self-Care Behavior.
At the end of this presentation,
participants will be able to:
- Introduce how healthy coping/stress management is included in the National Diabetes Prevention Program
- Define healthy coping
- Discuss how stress can impact type 2 diabetes risk and prevention behaviors
- Provide strategies to help participants build healthy strategies to manage stress
