Ableben von Dr. Aaron Beck

04.11.2021

Schreiben seiner Tochter: Today Beck Institute, our international community, and our family and friends are mourning the loss of my father, Dr. Aaron Beck. He passed away peacefully in his home surrounded by his family, at the age of 100. His intellect and passion for his work continued until his last few days. My father dedicated his life to the development and testing of treatments to improve the lives of countless people throughout the world facing health and mental health challenges. In the 1960s, my father revolutionized the practice of psychotherapy through the development of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), which is now one of the most widely adopted and studied treatments for anxiety, depression, and other mental health conditions. He continued trailblazing well into his nineties, working first with his colleagues at the University of Pennsylvania and then with colleagues at the Beck Institute Center for Recovery-Oriented Cognitive Therapy (CT-R) to develop a revolutionary treatment called Recovery-Oriented Cognitive Therapy that has transformed the way that severe mental health conditions are conceptualized and treated. His decades of work have forever changed the field of mental health.


My father and I co-founded the nonprofit Beck Institute for Cognitive Behavior Therapy in 1994 to provide training to CBT practitioners worldwide and expand the reach and impact of my father's groundbreaking work. Our vision was to create an institution that would allow CBT to evolve and thrive. We succeeded beyond our expectations. We now honor my father's legacy as we continue his work and further his mission of helping individuals live healthier, happier, and more meaningful lives.


Thank you to those who have already passed along condolences and well wishes to our family. We're grateful for your support and for your dedication to Beck Institute and the field of Cognitive Behavior Therapy.
