This chapter critiques the current psychological and social interventions used in addressing type 2 diabetes control and depression, suggesting an alternative approach using a lifespan perspective, drawing on attachment theory and personality research. It evaluates the psychological and social interactions of the two conditions and describes how current interventions such as cognitive behavioural therapy approach these difficulties and the limitations suggested in the current evidence base. It goes on to discuss the association of attachment theory and personality traits on both type 2 diabetes control and depression and proposes how this evidence might be harnessed in future interventions to improve outcomes in both conditions.
