Ongoing training on how to do CBT after a live or on-demand training is crucial to transferring a clinician’s new knowledge to their clinical work with clients. Beck Institute’s Individual Supervision program is designed to help you develop further competence in CBT with one-on-one guidance from our expert faculty.

Prerequisites for Individual Supervision

  • Completion of a live Beck Institute core workshop or on-demand course, completion of a core Beck Institute training through your employer, or the equivalent
  • Proof that you are licensed to practice psychotherapy in your locale (if required by your country)
  • Access to 2-3 consenting clients; Beck Institute is unable to provide clients
  • The ability to submit one audio recording of a therapy session electronically once per week
  • Supervisees should submit session recordings with clients who have been seen for at least three sessions

How It Works

Each week for 10 weeks, you will submit a session recording to your supervisor for review. Your supervisor will then provide individualized feedback during a 45-minute phone or virtual video conferencing session and a score based on the Cognitive Therapy Rating Scale — Revised (CTRS-R©). You will also have the option to add on additional half-terms of 5 weekly sessions as needed.

The cost per 10-week term is $3,000, and trainees earn 7.5 CE credits per term.


  • One term includes 10 weekly sessions
  • Terms begin on the first of each month
  • Additional half-terms of 5 weekly sessions can be added as needed


  • 45-minute review sessions
  • Sessions are held via phone or virtually by video conferencing


  • $3,000 per 10-week term

Passing Individual Supervision

In order to pass the Individual Supervision program, trainees must:

  • Attend all scheduled sessions of each contracted term; 
  • Submit recordings for all but one session in each contracted term; 
  • Submit a CCD for each unique client for whom sessions are reviewed; and 
  • Obtain at least three scores of 22 or above on the Cognitive Therapy Rating Scale — Revised (CTRS-R©) used to measure competency.

Trainees who reach proficiency receive a certificate of completion from Beck Institute. All other trainees receive a letter of participation.
