Beck Certified Professionals will receive a signed certificate, have access to resources provided by Beck Institute, discounts on select Beck Institute offerings, and invitations to attend exclusive Beck Institute-sponsored events and webinars. In addition, certified professionals will be included in our public therapist directory and be eligible to receive clinical referrals from Beck Institute.
The Beck CBT Certification program is designed for clinicians who are generalists or specialists in terms of their client populations and/or the conditions their clients present with. The four course requirements for the Beck Certified Clinician level encompass the essential concepts and structure of CBT with consideration of the three most common conditions seen in the general population. The additional course requirements for the Beck Certified Master Clinician level include advanced coursework on topics of the applicant’s choosing.
Individuals eligible for Beck CBT Certification must have a terminal degree in a mental health or allied health field, have substantial clinical experience, be able to attest to a history of ethical practice, and be licensed and professionally insured (if required) to practice in their locale. For more information, please review the full list of prerequisites.
Yes! We welcome international applicants to Beck CBT Certification.
Yes! We welcome applicants whose native language is not English. However, applicants should be able to read and write in English at the intermediate level.

- If you are an international applicant, please ensure that you can use these tools in your country.
No, Beck CBT Certification is intended as a form of continuing education and assessment for licensed clinicians already practicing psychotherapy. You are not awarded a degree and our training does not confer license to provide therapy. Instead, our training helps clinicians achieve proficiency in providing CBT effectively and with fidelity to the evidence-based model.
To find out how to be licensed to practice psychotherapy in your area, check with the governing board of licenses in your region.
Beck CBT Certification requires coursework and supervision designed by the Drs. Beck and based on the cognitive model as taught at the Beck Institute. Individuals in our program will improve their skills in applying the core components of Beck CBT, receive supervision from a CBT expert, and be evaluated on their CBT skills and conceptual understanding of the model. Our program raises the bar for excellence in CBT.
If you are already certified by another organization, you may still apply for Beck CBT Certification.
Yes, the annual Student and Early Career Professional Workshop satisfies the CBT for Depression course requirement for Beck Certified Clinician.
Yes. Essentials of CBT: The Beck Approach provides foundational CBT concepts, ensures adherence to the cognitive model in the practice of CBT as it is currently being taught, and helps us to establish consistency in excellence across a broad range of disciplines, settings and populations served. Feedback from past trainees–even those with high-level experience and expertise–is that our six- to eight-hour course is informative, engaging, and a worthwhile refresher and reorientation to the model.
Customized training provided through Beck Institute’s Training for Organizations (TFO) program will also count towards Beck CBT Certification when it conforms to the topic, objectives, and hours required for certification. TFO training that departs significantly from the framework of the prerequisites will not be counted.
Yes. Each level of Beck CBT Certification requires certain courses. Workshops onsite at Beck Institute and Beck Institute online training count toward these requirements.
Yes, past Beck Institute training that conforms to the hours and content focus of the certification coursework requirements count toward Beck CBT Certification.
All Beck Certified Professionals are recognized as having achieved a high degree of proficiency in delivering CBT with fidelity to the model developed by Aaron T. Beck.
Beck Certified Clinician (BCC) is the first level of Beck CBT Certification. BCCs have completed significant training in treating the most common conditions seen in the general population and will have demonstrated their competence in CBT.
Beck Certified Master Clinician (BCMC) is the second level of Beck CBT Certification. To progress to Beck Certified Master Clinician, candidates must first be a Beck Certified Clinician. BCMCs will have completed additional training and supervision in specialized areas and will have demonstrated a high degree of proficiency in CBT.
Beck Certified Supervisor (BCS) is the third level of Beck CBT Certification. To progress to Beck Certified Supervisor, candidates must first be a Beck Certified Master Clinician. BCSs will have completed additional training and supervision specific to teaching and supervising CBT.
Beck CBT Certification is valid for five years. After five years, Beck Certified Professionals will be required to requalify. The recertification process ensures continued fidelity to the CBT model.
Organizations who meet and maintain compliance with the rigorous standards held by Beck Institute will be eligible to earn the designation of a “Beck Accredited” organization.
Organizations may apply for accreditation beginning in 2020.
Accreditation by Beck Institute is for organizations that have met standards and continue to provide clinical services and/or training in accordance with the Beck Model for CBT. Accreditation is available to organizations who employ Beck Certified clinicians and supervisors.
The scholarship applies only to the workshop registration fee and does not include travel or lodging expenses.
After submitting your application via the website, you will receive an automated confirmation email. If you do not receive this email, please contact the training department (email@example.com).
All applicants will be notified of their status in late April.

Yes. Trainees who graduated within the same calendar year may still attend the workshop.
The content presented in our Graduate Student workshop is identical to our Core workshop (CBT for Depression & Suicide). The Graduate Student workshop is different in that it is only open to graduate students, psychiatric residents, pre-doctoral interns, or post-doctoral fellows in a mental health or related field (health, education, etc.). Additionally, this workshop does not provide CEs and the cost is significantly discounted to accommodate students.
A continental breakfast, refreshments, and light snacks will be available throughout the workshop. Lunch will not be provided as part of the workshop. However, the Marriott has a restaurant and there are several eateries available within walking distance of the hotel.
Yes. For your convenience, we have reserved rooms at the Courtyard Marriott hotel (where the workshop will be taking place). They are offering a reduced rate for participants of this workshop. To take advantage, please use this link to book your room by midnight on Friday, July 6th.
Supervision terms consist of 10 sessions over the course of 3 months. Sessions are held weekly, although we have factored in two extra weeks to accommodate illness, vacation, holidays, etc.
Beck Institute supervisors are highly skilled cognitive therapists who have trained with Dr. Aaron Beck and/or Dr. Judith Beck. You will be matched with a Beck Institute supervisor based on your treatment specialty.
Supervision terms consist of 10 sessions over the course of 3 months. Those of you who are signed up for Group Supervision will have one term of 10 60-minute sessions. Those of you who are signed up for Individual Supervision will have two consecutive terms of ten 45-minute sessions (for a total of 20 sessions over six months.) Sessions are held weekly, although we have factored in a couple extra weeks to better accommodate for illness, vacation, holiday, etc.
The first supervision term for all participants is scheduled to begin July 1st and end on September 30th. Those in Individual Supervision will begin another supervision term, immediately following the first supervision term This second term will run from October 1st to December 31st, and will be a continuation of regular supervision, unless you qualify for supervision of supervision.
Recordings will be submitted through a private, password-protected file-sharing service that Beck Institute is providing to all supervisees. Instructions on how to use this service are included above (see “File Encryption and Delivery Portal Instructions” under “Resource Documents.”)
A single session recording should be submitted at least three days in advance of your supervision call (approximately weekly.) Those of you in Individual Supervision will end up submitting 10 session recordings. Those of you in Group Supervision will rotate who is responsible for submitting the next week’s recording; for example, in a group of four clinicians, each clinician should expect to submit 2-3 session recordings across 10 sessions
Supervision calls may be conducted via telephone or video conferencing. If using video conferencing, you are not permitted to enable the “Record” feature as recording supervision calls are strictly prohibited. More details on specific programs will be provided to program participants.
You will need to use a digital voice recorder that converts to audio files.
We’ve found that saying something like the following helps:
“I have an unusual opportunity for you. You should feel free to say yes or no. I’m about to begin a special supervision program and if you do say yes, I think you’ll really benefit. Here’s what I’d do. I’d record our next few therapy sessions but I would never say or write down your full name. I’ll send the recordings to a special supervisor who will listen to it, then delete it, and then give me feedback. I always think two heads are better than one. You’d get the benefit of the expert supervision that I’ll be getting. [pause] What do you think? Do you want to be the client I choose? Or would you like to think about it?”
If you are in group supervision, just change the script to say:
“I’ll send the recordings to a special supervisor and to a couple of my colleagues. They’ll listen…”
Beck Institute recommends that you record two consenting clients per week (or, in advance of your scheduled week, for those of you in Group Supervision.) Recording more than one client at a time is helpful in the event that the primary client you’re using for supervision misses a session.
We recommend using the same client for at least the first few supervision sessions. You can then move onto another client if that would be more helpful. You are not required to use the same client throughout your supervision term, nor switch to another client.
Both you and your supervisor will rate every patient recording you submit using the Cognitive Therapy Rating Scale (CTRS.) You will need to read the CTRS Manual first. A Passing Score on the CTRS is 40. A copy of the CTRS and CTRS Manual are provided as downloadable documents on www.beckinstitute.org/Akron-Resources.
In order to successfully complete the supervision program, you must attend all 10 supervision sessions, submit at least 7 session recordings to your supervisor, and obtain at least 3 CTRS scores of 44 or above as rated by your supervisor.
When you successfully complete the supervision program, you will receive a Letter of Completion in the Beck Supervision Program.
You will receive a Letter of Participation documenting your participation in the supervision program.
To be eligible to participate in supervision of supervision, you must first successfully complete your first standard term of supervision (Individual) and receive 3 scores of 50 or higher on the CTRS. Please note that the standard to progress to supervision of supervision is a higher standard than is required to receive a Certificate of Completion. You must also receive a recommendation from your supervisor to begin supervision of supervision.
Supervision of supervision is structured the same way as regular supervision (10 sessions over the course of 3 months). However, instead of recordings of therapy sessions, you will send your supervisor recordings in which you are supervising your own trainees. You will then receive feedback from your Beck supervisor on how to become a more effective CBT supervisor.
Beck Institute will provide you with a copy of the Cognitive Therapy Rating Scale (CTRS) and CTRS Manual, a Cognitive Therapy Worksheet Packet, access to a secure file sending service to send your recordings, and a sample consent form to use with your clients. You will also be provided with copies of Beck scales (BDI, BAI, and BHS and, if applicable, the Beck Youth Scales). Please note, the BDI, BAI, BHS, and all Youth Scales are owned by Pearson Assessments and are provided as a special courtesy as part of your participation in the Beck Supervision Program. They are only to be used with clients with whom you are working within the scope of the Beck Supervision Program. Otherwise you will be in violation of copyright laws.
Accredited organizations must employ Beck Certified clinicians and supervisors. Organizations that provide on-site clinical training must provide supervision conducted by Beck Certified supervisors.
Certification is a process and designation for individuals. Individuals within organizations may be certified even though the organization for whom they work may not be accredited.

Cognitive behavior therapy is one of the few forms of psychotherapy that has been scientifically tested and found to be effective in hundreds of clinical trials for many different disorders. In contrast to other forms of psychotherapy, cognitive therapy is usually more focused on the present, more limited in duration, and more problem-solving oriented. In addition, patients learn specific skills that they can use for the rest of their lives. These skills involve identifying distorted thinking, modifying beliefs, relating to others in different ways, and changing behaviors. Learn more about CBT.
Cognitive behavior therapy is based on the cognitive model: the way we perceive situations influences how we feel emotionally.
For example, one person reading this website might think, “Wow! This sounds good, it’s just what I’ve always been looking for!” and feels happy. Another person reading this information might think, “Well, this sounds good but I don’t think I can do it.” This person feels sad and discouraged.
So it is not a situation that directly affects how people feel emotionally, but rather, their thoughts in that situation. When people are in distress, their perspective is often inaccurate and their thoughts may be unrealistic.
Cognitive behavior therapy helps people identify their distressing thoughts and evaluate how realistic the thoughts are. Then they learn to change their distorted thinking. When they think more realistically, they feel better. The emphasis is also consistently on solving problems and initiating behavioral changes.
It’s important to remember that cognitive behavior therapists use a different formulation for each psychiatric disorder. We use this formulation in conceptualizing the individual patient, which is an essential component to developing a sound therapeutic relationship, setting goals, planning treatment, and selecting interventions. Building trust and rapport with patients from the very first contact, demonstrating accurate empathy, sharing the conceptualization with the patient (and making sure it “rings true” for the patient), and collaborating are also essential. Another important part of every therapy session is helping patients respond to inaccurate or unhelpful ideas. The basic question to ask when a patient is reporting a distressing situation, emotion, or dysfunctional behavior is: “What is going through your mind right now?” Once we help patients identify their dysfunctional thinking, we help them gain more adaptive and accurate perspectives, especially by helping them examine the validity and usefulness of their thoughts. We also help them design behavioral experiments to test the accuracy of their predictions.
If you are undecided about therapy, think about the following:
You don’t need to make a commitment to a minimum number of sessions:
Some patients find even a few therapy sessions useful and then choose to continue working on their own.
View therapy as an experiment:
There is no way of your knowing in advance that cognitive therapy will definitely help, but it has helped countless people with difficulties. Think of giving cognitive therapy a try; there’s probably no hard evidence that it won’t help.
Realize that there is no big risk:
If it’s not helpful enough, you can stop, but the potential benefit might be great. It would be a shame if you decided not to try something that could really make a difference in your life.
It’s normal to have concerns:
You may worry whether therapy can help or you may feel hopeless about it. If you’re predicting that nothing will make you feel better, you may be wrong.
Finances are often a problem:
Many insurance plans pay for part of the cost of evaluation and treatment. Our goal is to teach you to be your own therapist and to keep therapy short, so cognitive therapy may be the best investment you could make.
If you’d like to know more, please call our intake coordinator, Molly Finkel, at 610-664-3020. There are also many excellent self-help books that can give you a good idea of what cognitive therapy is all about. We also have a recent blog post about this as well.
Cognitive therapists, being both practical and collaborative, can discuss the advantages and disadvantages of medication with you. Many patients are treated without medication at all. Some disorders, however, respond better to a combination of medication and cognitive therapy. If you are on medication, or would like to be on medication, you might want to discuss with your therapist whether you should have a psychiatric consultation with a specialist (a psychopharmacologist) to ensure that you are on the right kind and dosage of medication. If you are not on medication and do not want to be on medication, you and your therapist might assess, after four to six weeks, how much you’ve progressed and determine whether you might want a psychiatric consultation at that time to obtain more information about medication.
One way is to ask your therapist how you might be able to supplement your psychotherapy with cognitive therapy readings, workbooks, client pamphlets, etc. A second way is to prepare for each session, thinking about what you learned in the previous session and jotting down what you want to discuss in the next session.
A third way to maximize therapy is to make sure that you try to bring the therapy session into your everyday life. Therapists should make sure you take home notes or a recording of anything you want to remember, both changes in your thinking and an action plan to follow during the week.
Many patients notice a decrease in their symptoms within a few weeks of therapy, or even sooner, if they have been faithfully attending sessions and doing the suggested assignments between sessions on a daily basis.
An important first step is to set goals. Ask yourself, “How would I like to be different by the end of therapy?” Think specifically about changes you’d like to make at work, at home, in your relationships with family, friends, co-workers, and others. Think about what symptoms have been bothering you and which you’d like to decrease or eliminate. Think about other areas that would improve your life: pursuing spiritual/intellectual/cultural interests, increasing exercise, decreasing bad habits, learning new interpersonal skills, improving management skills at work or at home. Your therapist will help you develop a goal list and decide which goals you might be able to work toward on your own and which ones you might want to work on in therapy.
At each therapy session, cognitive behavior therapists help clients specify the problems they have encountered during the week or that they expect to encounter in the current week. They then collect data to identify the ideas and behaviors that have interfered with patients’ ability to solve problems themselves. Cognitive behavior therapists get clients actively engaged in deciding where to start working. Together, they develop an “action plan” or homework for patients (to do during the week) to implement solutions to problems or to make changes in their thinking and actions. This process gets clients actively involved in their own treatment; they begin to recognize that the way to get better is to make small changes in how they think and what they do every day. When treatment ends, clients are able to use the skills and tools they have learned in therapy in their day-to-day lives.
