Some DBT Cards have an additional top section that addresses behaviors that one may want to reduce, such as alcohol and drug use, self-harm, etc., but this blog will focus just on the skills as shown in this card.
Carry the card around with you so that you can quickly and easily access it when you notice you've practiced a skill. Make a check mark, highlight, or circle the skill. In the space below, jot down notes to remind yourself of examples of how you practiced. Be sure to bring your diary card to your DBT group or therapy session or keep it for your own records as you practice the skills.
