A diary card is a tool used in DBT skills groups and individual sessions to help the client track their emotions and behaviors along with coping skills to assess their effectiveness of use. They are typically used on a weekly basis and utilized in sessions with the therapists to discuss if skills were used and how useful they were to the client in different situations. An example diary card that I often use with clients is below. I will also often include the list of all DBT skills on the back as a reminder for the client to use.
