This paper aims to elucidate the need for counseling services among clients with diabetes, clarify common adjustment and diabetes self-care issues, and suggest counseling strategies for this population. We suggest that counselors increase their competencies in diabetes counseling, and strive to help traditional members of the diabetes care team (e.g., physicians) to recognize the benefits of routinely including counseling in diabetes care. This paper also explains the medical, psychosocial, and vocational aspects and implications of diabetes.
