Live interview with psychologist Korey Hood: diabetes at holiday time

For lots of us with diabetes the holidays can be an emotionally mixed bag. Celebrations are joyful, but usually involve foods that challenge our blood sugar control, our will power, and our health in general. And while it can seem like everyone else in the world is happy and carefree, we have a myriad of potential sources of stress and frustration related to diabetes. Join Dr. Korey Hood to discuss the coping and psychology of having diabetes and the holidays.

Dr. Hood is a licensed clinical and health psychologist who has worked in specialty diabetes clinics providing behavioral health services. In these settings, he cares for patients and families, particularly pediatric patients with type 1 diabetes. His services have addressed multiple clinical problems, but were all rooted in evidence-based practice that is developmentally and culturally competent. Much of the services he provides are family-based and cognitive-behavioral in nature. He has collaborated closely with multidisciplinary teams to optimize care and health outcomes. In addition to direct services, he has supervised pre-doctoral trainees, interns, residents, fellows, and early career psychologists. Dr. Hood's goal is to improve the health and quality of life outcomes of the patients and families seen clinically, and to promote skill-development and the synthesis of science and practice for the trainees he supervises.
Dr. Hood is a member of the American Psychological Association (APA), American Diabetes Association (ADA), Behavioral Research in Diabetes Group Exchange (BRIDGE), and the Society of Behavioral Medicine (SBM).
