Testimonials

The supervision was far more than I could have known to expect. [My supervisor’s] teaching was very helpful; she always had lots of recommendations for literature and her supervision was strengths-based. I learned something new every session and I looked forward to our sessions every week! [She] was collaborative and asked for feedback each session, and our working together evolved to fit my specific needs as time went on. It was truly woth the time, cost, and commitment! I learned so much!

The best clinical supervision that I ever received was from the Beck Institute.  My supervisor had always carefully reviewed my therapy tapes and offered insightful comments that improved my therapy skills and deepened my fundamental understanding of the theory and practice of Cognitive Therapy. I am a more effective therapist today because of the clinical supervision I received at the Beck Institute; it sets a gold standard for education and training.

William L., Ph.D.Pennsylvania

[My supervisor] was brilliant about creating space to take chances. He was able to help me feel fine about bringing the difficult things to supervision. His analogies were on-point, as far as helping someone see something from a different vantage point. [He] is outstanding at teaching the basics in a way that transforms therapy. Basics are important. They are glossed over sometimes because that is not the “rockstar” way of doing therapy. Basics have to be sound if therapy is going to work and [my supervisor] conveyed that well. I could go on and on. [My supervisor] was outstanding and I feel lucky to have worked with him.
