The DBT Coach - Smart Phone Solutions

DBT therapists combined efforts to develop an application for the iPhone/iPad tracking skills for clients with BPD.  This application is for use in combination with a client and their therapist, not as a replacement for therapy. This revolutionary study combines an evidence based practice with an application accessible to any client owning a smart phone. Participants reported a decrease in urges to use substances and a decrease in depressive symptoms. While more studies are needed to validate these findings, it is a step toward problem solving how the immediacy of technology may benefit certain vulnerable populations.
