DBT Diary Card & Skills Coach is an app designed to provide support and reference materials for users who would like to implement Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) practices into their everyday life. The home page of the app invites users to log their use of DBT skills, and provides resources to build those skills. The “Coaching” section guides users through common DBT practices including using “Wise Mind” in times of distress, practicing tolerance skills in the face of difficult emotions and experiences, using strategies to manage relationship tensions and/or conflict, and DBT based techniques to manage specific intense emotions like Anger, Sadness, Loneliness, and Feat. The app also provides users with graphics that depict their use of DBT skills over time.
