Problem solving is an essential skill for effective diabetes self-management. Evidence suggests that problem-solving therapy (PST) approaches, used in the context of broader diabetes educational or lifestyle interventions, may be effective for mood and select diabetes outcomes. As a stand-alone treatment, formal PST adapted for diabetes self-management is a promising behavioral intervention for improving health-related problem-solving, diabetes self-care behaviors, and disease control.
