The CBT App

The CBT App is an Apple™ app that offers skills and information to assist with a variety of mood and anxiety disorders. Based on the principles of CBT, The CBT App contains five modules that each include straightforward instructions, supporting information, and suggestions for further practice. The app also allows users to create a graph of their moods over time. Users can also share their graphs and progress with a therapist or other clinician, and the app may be a useful add-on to one of these more traditional treatments. The CBT App may be an easy way for users to gain basic knowledge about CBT-based skills, which can be helpful in managing troublesome symptoms.
