New Beginnings: A Discussion Guide for Living Well with Diabetes
From the Centers for Disease Control:
"New Beginnings: A Discussion Guide for Living Well with Diabetes is an on-line resource that uses stories about African Americans with diabetes to help group leaders lead discussions about the emotional side of living with diabetes, and help people with diabetes identify family and social support needs and develop goal setting, positive coping and problem solving skills. New Beginnings can be used to supplement diabetes self-management education sessions and in diabetes support groups."
