Right Mindfulness Based Intervention for Diabetes - DMM

Diabetes Management with Right-Mindfulness (DMM) - Practitioners Certificate

Diabetes Management with Mindfulness (DMM) is a stress and emotional management course designed to meet the unique self-care demands and challenges of living with either Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes.

This innovative ten-session program is founded on the clinically proven 8 week framework of Jon Kabat-Zinn's Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program. The Diabetes Management with Mindfulness course has coupled these foundations with the integration and specifically diabetes relevant elements of self-compassion, acceptance and transpersonal growth and development.

The course is designed to help people who suffer with diabetes to reduce their stress and anxiety levels. The DMM will provide skills and techniques to recognise and transform emotions such as anger, fear and resentment which have found to be detrimental to general health and diabetes. The purpose of the course is also to cultivate healthy ‘Super emotions’ such as self-compassion and acceptance both mental states known to improve immunity, vitality and quality of life. Finally, this course also includes an exploration into the transpersonal nature of living with a chronic illness, while simultaneously learning to develop a new healthier relationship with it. This is a fundamental part of living with diabetes that is often shied away from in other Mindfulness courses.

The course is grounded in current psychological research on stress, the mind and body interaction, acceptance, self-compassion, anger and diabetes burnout. DMM is focused towards enabling participants to develop sustainable healthy behaviours towards self, food and diabetes.
