Description

Activity diaries are a crucial information-gathering tool. They can be used for activity monitoring during an assessment phase of therapy, symptom monitoring during therapy, or activity planning as part of behavioural activation. This basic CBT Daily Activity Diary includes spaces to record activity for 1 hour time slots throughout the day.

Instructions

Activity monitoring: Clients are instructed to record their activity for each one-hour time slot throughout the day. It can be helpful to remind clients to carry the form with them and to record as-they-go-along, or else to leave the form somewhere they will notice it so as not to forget to complete the data collection.

Activity planning: Clients are instructed to record activities they intend to do.
