Shock. Fear. Confusion. Guilt. These are common reactions when parents are told that their child has Type I diabetes. They learn that there is no cure, so it's a life sentence for the child. At the same time, they are overwhelmed with medical information about the disease as well as about blood testing, insulin shots and new dietary routines. But what about the initial emotional impact of this diagnosis on those parents? Too often, little is done to help parents cope.
"Moving Forward... With Diabetes" is a new informative video that addresses the emotional journey faced by parents of children newly diagnosed with Type I diabetes. It offers support to parents with insights, stories, advice and reassuring messages from parents who have been through that difficult first year following the diagnosis. Topics include: facing the diagnosis, managing diet and testing, finding support, dealing with schools and normal activities, re-establishing a normal life, teaching responsibility to the child, and coping with emotions. There is plenty of helpful advice and lessons learned. Their children also offer advice to parents and talk about living with diabetes.
This 72-minute program, on DVD, retails for $30 (US). The exclusive retailer during the initial release is Amazon.com. A preview video and details are available on the company's Web site at http://www.arnoldcreekproductions.com.... The target audiences include parents, health care professionals, diabetes educators, support groups and others who interact with families of children with diabetes.
