MOTA, Jessica Maires Severino et al. Reduction of anxiety with people with diabetic: physical and psychological interfaces of an intervention. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2016, vol.9, n.2, pp. 312-323. ISSN 1983-8220.

Experiment carried out with people with diabetes, through an intervention which consisted of physical and psychological activities. The goal was to verify if performing an intervention would have any impacts on improving the anxiety in the individuals. Anxiety is an emotion associated with diabetes which can impair the glycemic control and affect the production of important hormones. The activities were performed throughout the period of one and a half years. A significant difference on anxiety levels was identified after the intervention, indicating the potential of this type of work.
