Beck Institute Individual Training

In-Person Workshops

Beck Institute holds more than 20 in-person workshops at our suburban Philadelphia headquarters throughout the year. These unique trainings provide an opportunity for health, mental health, and other professionals to learn directly from our expert faculty through in-depth lectures and to participate in practical, experiential exercises. Participants report increased understanding of CBT skills and confidence in implementing CBT in their practices.

Online Training

Beck Institute offers online courses that provide comprehensive training on the fundamentals of CBT. Each course provides an engaging and dynamic learning experience delivered by expert Beck Institute faculty through written, video, and interactive content. Our online courses extend access to in-depth CBT training to professionals around the world and bring our mission of improving lives worldwide to life.

Supervision Program

Beck Institute offers individualized training for clinicians hoping to advance their skills through individual (or group) supervision. Supervision provides an intensive training opportunity to ensure competency and fidelity to the practices of CBT and CT-R. This collaborative training program reinforces prior training, helps clinicians integrate learned techniques into their practice, and allows clinicians to focus on strengthening skills in their desired topic areas.

The Beck Institute CBT Certification program was launched in 2019 to raise the bar for excellence in our field. Our rigorous program merges in-person and online training in foundational CBT knowledge with mentorship and personal feedback on clinical work from a member of our expert faculty. Through this intensive program, we focus on helping clinicians build the skills to successfully implement CBT into their practice. We objectively assess each applicant’s competence before granting Certification, because we believe that highly skilled clinicians are essential to improved outcomes for clients.

The Beck Institute Center for Recovery-Oriented Cognitive Therapy (CT-R) was created in 2019 to continue the development of CT-R through implementation and research. The CT-R team trains multidisciplinary staff (clinicians, direct care staff, peers
etc.), helping agencies and systems develop implementation strategies that foster sustainability. In addition to implementing CT-R across a variety of settings, we research, write, and teach about this innovative practice. Our first book on CT-R will be
published by Guilford Press in 2020.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

At Beck Institute for Cognitive Behavior Therapy, we work for the future: for CBT, for the professionals we train, for the individuals these professionals serve, and for the greater community. We envision a world where individuals can access high-quality, evidence-based psychotherapies that help them get better and stay better. By making our high-quality CBT and CT-R available, we aim to meet the needs of mental health professionals and the people they serve.

Our strategy for success is embedded into our values of adaptability and innovation. We retain experts at the forefront of our work – our faculty members, international advisors, and Beck Institute leadership to ensure relevance to the needs of the community. By communicating with our local and global partners, we can maintain innovative practices institution wide.

We are the home of CBT, and our work revolves around making high-quality CBT available to people from the source. Our passionate and innovative staff, faculty, leadership, and partners make our work possible.

Over the past 27 years, we have trained over 28,000 health and mental health professionals in 130 countries worldwide. By continuing to increase access to our world-class CBT and CT-R training, we can help people live healthier lives.
