DBT Apps We Recommend

DBT Diary Card and Skills Coach

This is one of our favorite and most comprehensive DBT apps for IPhone users.  It offers a customizable diary card that targets the behaviors you want to decrease or increase, offers charts and graphs on your progress, has a reference section, and coaching help on how and when to use skills.  You can also email your diary card to your therapist prior to your next session.  The app costs about $5.00.

Simple DBT Skills Diary Card

This app gets some good reviews. A Daily Log for each day with 28 skills, as well as descriptions and examples of each skill.  A notification reminder allows you to set to times to practice your skills and fill out your daily diary card.  You can also email your diary cards and communicate with your therapist via this app.

DBT Trivia & Quiz

We really enjoy using this app especially when waiting around in airports, at the doctor’s office, or feeling bored!  It is fun and entertaining and helps you improve your DBT skills and knowledge.  The app is set up like a video game and quizzes on all four of the DBT modules.

Dbt911 for Android

This is a pretty good app for Android devices and not dissimilar to the DBT Diary Card and Skills Coach. It offers  users a diary card feature which can be emailed in PDF format to your therapist or printed out to bring to session.  It is free too.
