Possible Correlates of Posttraumatic Growth Among Patients with Type II Diabetes
Diabetes, a chronic illness, affects individuals' lives dramatically. The present study aims to evaluate therole of possible psychosocial variables associated with Posttraumatic Growth (PTG) among outpatientswith diabetes with a history of inpatient treatment. Within a theoretical framework of the model ofSchaefer and Moos (1998), the roles of perceived social support, self-efficacy, diabetes-related variables,and cognitive processing have been examined by employing structural equation modeling in a sample ofoutpatients with diabetes having a history of at least one inpatient treatment. A total of 275 diabeticoutpatients, 183 women and 92 men, who were treated at least once in a hospital, participated in the study.The mean age of participants was 52.09 ± 9.49 years. Diabetes-related factors mediated the relationshipbetween perceived social support and PTG. Also, cognitive processing mediated the relationship betweenself-efficacy and PTG. Increasing patients' self-efficacy and facilitating social support networks should betaken into account when designing psychosocial intervention programs in diabetic patients, as theprograms with content support high control perception of their health.
