In diabetes camps, medical social workers interact with individuals and groups of participants to help them learn to adapt psychologically and emotionally to the stress from diabetes and to improve their ability to cope with interpersonal relationships. The change stage model (transtheoretical model) is applied to change the behavior of diabetics. Social worker intervention programs in diabetes camps provide opportunities for patients to manage their diabetes healthily by increasing self-esteem, participating in motivational counseling, and developing stress management, fear and conflict resolution. In particular, in the 2030 diabetes camp program, young diabetics can learn the personal importance of medical social workers through the ‘post-camp’ talk.
