Symptom Tracker

Self-monitoring of thoughts, feelings, and symptoms is an essential skill in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). This generic symptom tracker helps clients to monitor the presence or absence of symptoms over the course of a month.

Symptom trackers are a useful way of monitoring the presence or absence of symptoms over the medium-term. This generic Symptom Tracker includes spaces for clients to record symptoms over a one month period.

The Symptom Tracker includes space to record symptoms of interest for one month. Each row represents one symptom (to be specified by the client), and each column represents one day of the month. Clients should be instructed to shade a box representing that symptom/day if a symptom was present, and to leave it clear if the symptom was absent. To record additional detail boxes can be half/completely shaded to represent mild/severe symptoms respectively.
