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. Therapists can choose to see these in real-time or access them when they see clients. No more paper notes; no more lost guide sheets.
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.
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.
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.
Patients can reach their therapist if they’re in crisis, leading to more effective sessions and better patient safety and wellbeing.
Patients can share information and chat with clinicians through the app in real-time. Alternatively, clinicians can set the app so patients can reach out to them and submit diary forms using an automatically-generated passcode.
DBT for adolescents was created by Alec Miller and Jill Rathus along with their mentor, DBT treatment developer, Marsha Linehan. Dr. Alec Miller is co-founder and co-director of Cognitive and Behavioral Consultants in New York and Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Dr. Jill Rathus is Co-Founder and Co-Director of Cognitive Behavioral Associates in New York and Professor of Psychology at Long Island University. Drs. Miller and Rathus supplied the content the app uses, while its structure and functionality were developed in partnership with Jackson Memorial Hospital by our experienced app design and development team.
