Previous researchers have found a connection between social support, self-efficacy, motivation, a self-as-doer identity, and stigma with adherence to diabetes self-care behaviors. My goal was to determine whether these factors affected adherence to self-care behaviors in individuals with type 1 diabetes. The hypothesis was that social support, self-efficacy and motivation will have a positive relationship with self-care behaviors. Stigma will have the opposite effect, with a negative correlation with self-care behaviors. Social support, self-efficacy, and motivation will predict increased self-care behaviors. Stigma will predict a decrease in self-care behaviors.
