According to Green (1990) "health education" means "Every combination of experiences of learning that aim to predispose, to facilitate and to strengthen voluntary adaptations of behavior of individual health". The authors present the preliminary data of the intervention program proposed to young insulindependent diabetics aged between 16 and 26 years consulting the Service of Illnesses of the Metabolism and Nutrition (MMN) of the Ulss 9 of Treviso. The approach of care to diabetes is proposed in a biopsicosocial optic and the educational intervention is restructured by passing from an information giving model to a model of group empowering with particular attention to the development of the life skills. The phases of transformation and construction of the new educational program which involved different operators of the Service MMN are introduced. The preliminary clinical and behavioral data are discussed in the optic of future developments and of perceived satisfaction.
