“TriggerTracer.” Supporting your clients when they need it most.
The road to success and the road to failure are almost exactly the same.” ~Colin R. Davis
At times, your clients find themselves in vulnerable positions where people, places, and events can trigger them to engage in self-limiting behaviors that impede the goals and treatment plan they have established with you, the provider. More often than not, these challenging times are not when they are in session with you. That’s where TriggerTracer comes in.
TriggerTracer is like having you there to support their decisions and remind them of the action plan you’ve agreed upon to help them succeed. As we all know, your client’s success is based on the trust relationship between both of you and why agreeing that the client will use the app before engaging in limiting behaviors is essential.
How To Use TriggerTracer
Download the TriggerTracer app at the Apple App Store or Google Play. To utilize the export feature, please register this app using the same email address as you did to enroll in the FitWit Brain course. The export feature will be enabled upon confirmation of course enrollment.
TriggerTracer is based on the principals of CBT and NLP and helps you to reach your goals by identifying patterns of behavior that impede your path to self-actualization.
By tracing the patterns of what triggers your undesired behaviors, your provider will be able to identify sources, days, and times when you are vulnerable and support you to develop an effective action plan.
Please follow the steps below.
- When you feel a trigger, open the app and tap “check-in.”
- Choose the emotion(s) you’re feeling and rate its intensity.
- Tap the “pencil” icon at the end of the rating slide to open a new window.
- Here, document what you think is triggering the emotion; person, place, thing, or event and tap “save.”
- On the next screen tap “action plan.” Here you can add an action or use the stored actions you and your provider determined to be most beneficial. If adding a new action, click “save” when done.
- Next, check the box next to the action you’re choosing. If you still feel vulnerable after engaging in your chosen action, choose another action.
7. When you feel the trigger has passed and you are no longer at risk to engage in limiting behavior, tap “results.”
8. Tap the plus sign next to the “result summary.” Here, summarize how engaging in the actions you chose did or did not help you to manage the trigger. When finished tap “save.”
9. On the next screen, tap the box next to your summary then tap “complete session.” Your session is time/date-stamped and saved.
10. One day, or less, before your next appointment with your provider, tap “PDF Export.” If you have not signed up yet, you’ll need to do so to export your summary. Tap the dates between your last provider appointment and today that you checked in (dates that you checked in will be darker than the other dates) then, tap “export summary.”
11. Enter the login password you set up when you signed up and tap “proceed.”
12. Save the download to your device. Next, email the summary to your provider prior to your next session. If your provider has given you alternate instructions for transmitting the session summary to them, please follow your provider’s instructions.
We have also provided a “gratitude journal” for you to record something you are grateful for at least once a day. Gratitude is an important component in your growth and the healing process. Your gratitude journal is downloadable and able to be shared at your appointment with your provider if you choose to.
People, places, and events can trigger feelings that lead your clients to choose old self-limiting behavior and habits that impede their path to success.
Our mobile app guides clients through the point of vulnerability with the action plan you set up giving them the confidence that they can succeed.
Each time your client is able to successfully walk themselves through a situation where they would normally encounter a setback, their self-confidence builds.
