Daily Monitoring Form

Activity diaries can be used for activity monitoring during an assessment phase of therapy, symptom monitoring during therapy, correlating activity with symptoms, or activity scheduling as part of behavioral activation. This diary helps clients to identify activities associated with experiences of pleasure and mastery over the course of a day.

Low levels of rewarding activity are characteristic of depression. Monitoring activity is an essential component of cognitive behavioral treatments for depression such as behavioral activation. This worksheet is similar to the CBT weekly activity diary, including space for enjoyment and mastery ratings, but uses a daily format. This monitoring form focuses on rating the enjoyment and importance of activities but with a focus on a single day which allows for fine-grained analysis.
