Beck Institute Scholarship

Can you help us spread the word?


The Beck Institute for Cognitive Behavior Therapy is pleased to announce our 2nd Annual Scholarship Competition for Faculty, which will commence on January 1, 2014.

The Beck Institute will award five faculty recipients (graduate faculty in psychology, psychiatry, social work, nursing, and counseling may apply) with full tuition scholarships to our Annual Faculty Workshop: Teaching and Supervising CBT, in Philadelphia, PA, on June 9 – 11, 2014.

In this workshop led by Beck Institute adjunct faculty member, Donna Sudak, MD, and Beck Institute Director of Education, Daniella Cortez Cavenagh, PhD, graduate faculty will learn how to employ evidence-based strategies to improve CBT teaching and supervision, how to identify key learning needs and micro skills for CBT training, and how to effectively provide feedback to students and trainees. The workshop will also address faculty development, program development (including coordination of training elements within a program), and processes of student/trainee evaluation.


The workshop will feature a 90-minute conversation with Dr. Aaron Beck, after which scholarship winners are invited to discuss their work in a private session with Drs. Judith and Aaron Beck.


To enter the competition, please submit answers to the following questions using no more than 200-500 words (in total), within the body of an email, and send it tobeckfacultyscholarship@gmail.comApplications will be accepted January 1, 2014 through January 31, 2014. *Attachments will not be accepted.


  1. What has been your training in CBT?
  2. What population do you teach or will you teach CBT to?
  3. How do you hope to use the knowledge you will obtain from the workshop?


Deadline: January 31, 2014


*Scholarship applicants may register for the Faculty Workshop in advance, and will be refunded should they win the competition. Applicants from previous years are eligible to apply.


Visit the Faculty Scholarship Competition page for complete details.


Can you help us spread the word by telling your friends, colleagues, and professors about this opportunity?


We look forward to reading your applications. Good luck!



Aaron Beck and Judith Beck

In addition to our local CBT practitioners we will be meeting up with the local organizations from SF and NYC. We hope to share ideas about how to make our local professional associations as effective and fun as possible. We also, of course, hope to relax and enjoy each other!

We have a table for 20 reserved in the bar area from 8-10pm. This is a casual Irish pub where there is room to mingle around the table for as many folks as come.

Look forward to seeing you there!
