We can all help the world be a better place by helping ourselves and others to live here and now and
Building on the success of the first app I aim to build a new app or new version of the previous app to really acchieve everything that was first envisioned for a really effective self-help tool and make it available for scientific research regarding its efficiency in skill acquisition and generalisation. In other words, how helpful is the app when it comes to helping people learn the skills needed to acchieve positive results and how effective is the app in the long term.
The DBT Self-help and Diary Card app will have a userfriendly interface with tutorial guides that lowers the learning curve, it´s supposed to be fun to use the app.
Who can benefit from this app?
We can all benefint from this app as these skills helps us manage emotions and human behavior that are shared by every human being. We all have feelings that gives us impulses to act and if the feelings are strong then we have difficulty acting opposite those impulses which we sometimes need to do. We all are engaging in relations both private and professionally and being skillful may increase the situations when we get what we want or refuse what we don´t want. Today we are almost in a constant flow of information and distracting input that most of us are struggling to focus on the present moment and be aware of what is happening right now. The app helps us with both theory and practice of skills that we can train to increase our abilities to focus and be more effective in our lives regardsless of who we are and what we do.
Organizations and companies will also be given the option to be presented as an official sponsor in the app itself, on the web and featured in news releases detailing the project.
Free webinars and e-books are also included here but most importantly, they are part of a project aimed to save lives and decrease suffering.
I hope that companies and organizations that use DBT in their treatments will come forward to back this project as it is a tool that they can use themselves to enhance their therapy results and success.
I feel a deep commitment to helping people suffering of overwhelming emotions which might also trigger destructive impulsive behaviors. Helping people learn the skills needed for them to change what they themselves think need changing and help people live a life that is meaningful for them.
