Clients—and You

Developed in partnership with Jackson Memorial Hospital, Allogy’s Adolescent DBT Diary Card app gives teens specific skills and prompts to help them track and implement the Adolescent DBT Skills in their daily lives.

Central to the app is the Diary Card system, which lets users record problem behaviors being targeted in treatment, emotions, triggers, and the DBT skills they used to cope. No more paper notes; no more lost guide sheets.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy for Adolescents

DBT is an evidence-based treatment that relies on skills and strategies that balance acceptance with the need for change. It addresses teens’ emotional dysregulation, problematic behavior patterns including impulsivity and avoidance, and interpersonal challenges including teen-family conflicts.

Miller, Rathus & Linehan adapted DBT initially for depressed and suicidal teens with features of borderline personality disorder; however, it has since been used with teens diagnosed with bipolar disorder, eating disorders, substance-use disorders, disruptive behavior disorders, and those with family conflicts. Moreover, DBT for Adolescents has been used in outpatient, inpatient, residential, medical, forensic, and school settings.

Why DBT for Adolescents?


Better Preparation

Know what’s happening with a patient between sessions. Don’t wait a week to find out they’re in crisis. Stop relying on self-reporting to know how they’re implementing DBT.

Reassured Patients

Early in therapy, patients can be insecure, and some are close to crisis. Patients are reassured that the tools they need are always with them, and if they really need it, so are you.

Improved Insight

See detailed records of what patients are really doing. Spot patterns they don’t see, and improve the guidance and feedback you can offer in sessions.

How Does it Work?

Patients can easily fill in their daily DBT Diary Cards on their phone. DBT for Adolescents also makes these cards available to clinicians.

A searchable database of actionable DBT skills so patients can quickly find the skill they need for the situation they’re in.

See patient messages, what patients have recorded, and which skills they have reached for and practiced.

Offer patients in-app skills recommendations and personal assistance. Feeling like this? Try this.

Patients can reach their therapist if they’re in crisis, leading to more effective sessions and better patient safety and wellbeing.
