Sarah Jaser, Ph.D.
Intervention for Mothers of Adolescents with Type 1 Diabetes
Mothers of adolescents with type 1 diabetes experience high levels of stress and depressive symptoms, which impair their ability to monitor and manage diabetes treatment effectively.  Maternal stress and depressive symptoms are linked with negative outcomes in adolescents, including deteriorating glycemic control, poorer quality of life, and greater depressive symptoms. Dr. Jaser aims to develop and test the feasibility and preliminary efficacy of a cognitive-behavioral intervention to reduce depressive symptoms and improve parenting in mothers of adolescents with type 1 diabetes.
