What are the requirements for practicing as a cognitive therapist?

All professionals who practice psychotherapy must do so within the legal requirements of their own locales. No legal body regulates the practice of cognitive behavior therapy (CBT); however, competent cognitive behavior therapists 1) have received training and supervision specific to CBT and 2) undertake ongoing efforts to develop and maintain their competence. Beck Institute strongly supports certification by the Academy of Cognitive Therapy as a way to promote standards of practice and care.

Does Beck Institute offer certification in cognitive therapy?

Beck Institute trains, but does not certify, cognitive behavior therapists. The Academy of Cognitive Therapy is the certifying body for cognitive behavior therapists.

Do you offer scholarships or financial aid for Beck Institute training programs?

In some cases, yes. We offer training scholarships to therapists working with active-duty or veteran military personnel, and we offer a special workshop annually at a reduced rate for students.

Other financial aid may be available. For more information, please email Maritza Lawson at
