The DBT Diary Card is a digitized version of the diary card used in evidence-based DBT programs, and is currently under development.
This tool is a daily tracker of mood, target behaviors and the use coping skills to manage different emotions, urges, and behaviors. Our Dialectical Behavior Therapy applet will enable therapists to create a digital DBT diary card with a patient to include specific treatment targets for that individual. It will also use notifications to remind patients to complete the diary card on a daily basis. The patient’s device will automatically update with the new targets and schedules when changes are made by their therapist during treatment, allowing the user to progress in the therapy without having to change the way the data is retrieved. Both patients and therapists will have access to the diary card data to guide treatment planning and sessions.
