History of Beck Institute
Dr. Beck developed Cognitive Therapy (CT), also known as Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) in the 1960s. The original Center for Cognitive Therapy at Penn served as an important training ground for cognitive behavior therapists. Still, Dr. Beck and his daughter, Dr. Judith Beck, had long wished to establish a new clinical setting that would provide state-of-the-art psychotherapy and training opportunities for professionals worldwide and at all levels. In 1994, they established the Beck Institute at its present site in Bala Cynwyd, in suburban Philadelphia.
Beck Institute’s Influence
In recognition of Dr. Beck’s scholarship and therapeutic model, the international psychotherapeutic community has acknowledged his expertise in the field of mental health. In fact, Centers for Cognitive Therapy have been established all over the world by clinicians, researchers, and academics who trained at the original center in Philadelphia or at Beck Institute.
