A diary card is something you use to track your emotions and behaviors. I have a sampe one
(edited by mod) on my practice site. The idea is that if you pay attention to what you're feeling and doing, we might be able to get a grasp of what's going on for you and eventually work to break some patterns of behavior that create problems for you. It also give me as a therapist a place to quickly jump to the most difficult part of your week. This really helps us with our treatment targeting in session.

I don't understand what you're saying here. Just because I'm employed in this field, I shouldn't be allowed to talk about how the work I do can help? That makes no sense to me. Anything I learn from other posters, app-related or not, can help me do a better job with my clients.
We also only have your word that you are a psychologist. Regardless of whether you are or not, you have no interest in the support or well being of the forum members here other than asking questions about the diary cards and pushing DBT treatments. If you really ARE a psychologist, I would be quite concerned about your clients.
How do you know I have no interest in the support or well-being of forum members? That's an awfully big assumption.
And pushing diary cards AND DBT treatments? That's a lot to say I'm trying to promote. DBT is the best treatment available for BPD, no question about it. So, yes, in a forum about BPD, I'm going to talk up DBT. Absolutely and without apology. Diary cards are a big part of a DBT program and that's what this thread is about. Please, let's take this discussion to PMs if you want to continue it. Or contact the moderators if you really feel this is an inappropriate thread.
