This is a classic daily activity diary for working with depressed clients which includes space for enjoyment and mastery ratings. It can be used for assessing key moments in the week where the client felt enjoyment during an activity, or felt mastery (a sense of accomplishment while participating in the activity). Once key activities have been identified which lead to feelings of enjoyment and mastery, more similar activities can be scheduled for subsequent weeks to build a sense of self-efficacy and self-esteem.
